The Voice

Today, more than at any other time, there is a multiplicity of opinions, with almost every voice contending that they have earned the right to be heard, that they are experts, qualified to be worth our attention. Single people talking about raising kids, people of average income claiming to have keys that can unlock millions for others. All that is well and good, but really, to whom then should we listen, who should we believe? Especially with respect to the matters that concern the reality of our lives.

Jesus Christ, in Matthew Chapter 21, asked one of those trademark questions:

Matthew 21:25
[25]The baptism of John, whence was it? from heaven, or of men? And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say unto us, Why did ye not then believe him?

My immediate concern isn’t with his question actually, but rather the ensuing thought process that it evoked in the minds of his questioners.

You notice that they said if we said that what John did was from heaven, the obvious response will be, Why didn’t they believe him. As though inferring that, if a matter was ordained and approved by Heaven, the response it ought to elicit from us should to believe and nothing else.

John was from the earth and his baptism from heaven, and for that reason he stood to be believed. Our Lord Jesus Christ, didn’t only speak that which the Father in heaven spoke as it were, he was also from heaven. That should be like a double criteria for believing.

We may be uncertain as to who and what to believe and trust, but that uncertainty stops with Jesus and His word, for with Him we have a double assurance of verity.

We can and are exhorted to hold on to his word as the only and final say in the multiplicity of voices, because, He that is from above is above all. (John 3:31)

If we adjudge him as being from being who he said he is, the Son of God, then we can only have one response. Believe in him.

There is only one voice that matters, the voice from heaven.

There is only one person that matters, the one from above.

You can trust him.

So, coming our way, will be a song review tomorrow. It promises to be yet the unveiling of a power song. God bless you.
