Hebrews 1:1-2: “In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe.”

Most of us are familiar with upgrades. Technology is constantly improving and has affected the way we communicate. The invention of the telephone – not to mention the wireless phone – has connected us globally and revolutionized human communication. Remember how long it took to get a letter from one continent to another? Letters had to be shipped, which took weeks at a time. With the invention of the telephone and especially the computer we effortlessly bridge long distances today.

If cellphones and computers represent a major breakthrough in long distance communication, certainly our perception of God has been revolutionized when the Word became flesh and lived among us. What God has proclaimed through His prophets in preceding centuries is now plain to be seen in His Son. It is so much easier for us to grasp God’s message of love by just looking at Jesus. Jesus walked the talk. In Him God’s Word literally comes alive.

God has shared the truth with us for as long as there have been people. His Spirit stirs us up from deep within; He works subtly, but we can distinguish His voice if and when we receive His Spirit. We will find that He prods, excites, convicts, and motivates us on a daily basis; God wants to guide us and He speaks to us in many different ways. Especially He inspires us through His Son – and Jesus is presently in heaven interceding for us that we all can receive His signals.

“Peace be on earth
Announcing Jesus’s birth
The light of the Lord shines upon you
Glory to God
Goodwill to men
And peace to everyone with whom He’s pleased.”
