Heb1:1,2 – Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son…
I was born again in August of 1973, I am celebrating 43 years of my Christian faith this month. When I accepted Christ into my life I had been on a spiritual journey. This journey had led me from the Divine Light Mission, to the Baha’i Faith, and even to the Krishna temple. I was searching for something real, something more than just a creed. The search ended suddenly and dramatically one night at the lakefront in New Orleans. I prayed to receive Christ and my life was totally changed. It wasn’t that I took on a new set of beliefs or embraced a new creed, Christ actually came into my life. He changed me from the inside. He changed my heart and begin to speak to me from the inside. My Bible was brand new, church was brand new, worship was brand new, and I was brand new. Here are some thoughts from Andrew Murray on God speaking through His Son.
“It is through this Son, God speaks to us. Not through the words of the Son only, for they too are human words, and may, just like the inspired words of the prophets, bring in but little profit. It is through the Son—the living, mighty, divine Son, direct—that God speaks: it is only in direct living contact with the Son that the words can profit. And the Son, not as we superficially think of Him, but the real divine Son as God has revealed Him, known and worshipped and waited on as the outshining of the divine glory,—it is this Son of God, entering into our heart and dwelling there, in whom God will speak to us, and in whom we shall be brought nigh to God. When Christ reveals the Father, it is not to the mind, to give us new thoughts about Him, but in the heart and life, so that we know and experience the power in which God can dwell and work in man, restoring him to the enjoyment of that blessed fellowship for which he was created, and which he lost by the fall. The great work of God in heaven the chief thought and longing of His heart is, in His Son, to reach your heart and speak to you.”
That is the most amazing thing in Christianity to me. The personal nature of this faith, God speaks through His Son. God speaks to me through His Son.
