“But you should continue following the teachings you learned. You know they are true, because you trust those who taught you. Since you were a child you have known the Holy Scriptures which are able to make you wise. And that wisdom leads to salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.” – 2 Timothy 3:14-15
‘..you trust those who taught you.’
I can still see you and those flannel graph stickers of Bible characters and stories. I can close my eyes and re-live a moment in the classroom, the library, and in the pew, where you taught me another facet of God’s Word.
I am near 50 years old now and the God you introduced me to still holds my hand.
He still says “I love you, son.” when I wake up to do devotions or when I’m sitting at a stop light waiting to make that turn toward the office.
If I live to be a hundred, I’m about to reach the ‘mid’ and the only ‘crisis’ I’m experiencing is that there are those who do not know Him yet and that some of those who do have not sat still long enough to acquire His frequency and hear Him say ‘I love you.’ today.
First, I am not me without you whom I trusted to teach me. I am ever grateful.
Second, if you’re settling for anything less than God’s Word to you, you’re only hearing static.
He loves you.
Are you listening?
