Listen for Their Voices
If we truly believe knowledge will pass away, why; spend lives
competing to know about God, think our training is omnipotent
truth, and war over doctrinal differences (causing separation of
company from those not like us)? Brother against brother is a
testimony lost people notice.
When standing before God, He won't be asking what we believe,
how much we know, or even where we studied. Though, we are
accountable for 'who' we believe; gods or God.
With humorous intentions, a young teen expressed interest in
having a T-shirt designed to read, "I only do what the voices
tell me to do." "The children of this world are in their
generation wiser than the children of light," Lu. 16:8.
Jesus said, "My sheep HEAR my voice ... and they follow me,"
Jn. 10:27. "Be more ready to HEAR, than to give the sacrifice of
fools: for they consider not that they do evil," Ec. 5:1.
Wisdom begins once we stop telling God what He believes, ask
Him, and listen for His answer. The Spirit of truth will guide
us into all truth, Jn. 16:13.
Perhaps then, churches could unite in love: "One Lord, one
faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all,
and through all, and in you all," Ep. 4:5-6. Paul's vision for
the church included that we all grow into a unity of the faith.
"For there is (only) one God, and (only) one mediator between
God and men, the man Christ Jesus," I Ti. 2:5. Out of the mouth
of babes, listen for their voices. The grace of the Lord Jesus
Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy
Ghost, be with you all. Amen. 2 Cor. 13:14
