Translating God's Word for a new generation


← back to list

We are an audiovisual culture. Everywhere you turn, people use a wide variety of means to grab attention: billboards along a highway, radio commercials, pop-up advertisements on social media, telephone surveys that interrupt family dinners. The list goes on and on! Jesus, too, used a variety of means at His disposal in the first century to communicate His message of life and salvation. He Himself is the greatest communication in any time and place—the very Word made flesh. Christ gives words that are spirit and life. He speaks; we listen. Christ also does the saving work of removing darkness by His death and Resurrection. He shines; we see and live. Talk about an audiovisual Savior! Today, let us listen, touch, taste and see. As we respond to God’s grace with "psalms and hymns and spiritual songs," let us lift up thankful hearts to our Father in the Name of Jesus.
