We’ve come a long way since the Titanic sank due to the absence of a two-way telegraph system. Iceberg warnings were not picked up because first class passengers had the poor telegraph operator occupied sending frivolous greetings on this new gadget. Disaster due to poor communication.
The inventor of the clockwork radio was motivated by the tragic spread of AIDS in Africa due to poor basic health information. This in turn was due to lack of radios caused by the high cost of replacement batteries. Another disaster due to poor communication.
Today communication is the buzz word with texts, internet, e-mails and mobile phones everywhere. A goalkeeper recently conceded a goal due to a call on his mobile. Yet with all these methods of talking we still seem to have a big problem with our communication with God.
Doesn’t voice mail annoy you? You’ve made the effort and taken the time to call someone and lo and behold they can’t hear you! Worse still is the message “Voice mail has not been activated”. God had that same feeling, only much worse, when Adam hung up on Him in the garden. His and Eve’s sin separated them and broke the line of communication. How tragic. No wonder the world is so messed up. The source of all wisdom, love and life, God Himself, has been largely cut off.
Communication can however be re-established along with a wonderful relationship with God, when we allow Jesus to take our sins. That’s why they call it good news, He died, the good guy for <nsert your nick-name> the rebel. Now all that remains is for you to communicate by talking honestly and openly to God in the same way as you would talk to a friend. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved from a disaster due to poor communication.
Want to know more? Then talk to Jesus directly… now.
