Can You Hear Me Now?
In the early years of the 21st century (2002), an average American dressed in slacks and a gray windbreaker broke into the scene (our television screens, to be exact) asking a simple question, “Can you hear me now?” Since then, Verizon® has become the largest wireless communication carrier in the US. Who would have thought that a simple guy asking a simple question would make such a huge impact in our lives and the life of our nation?
My wife and I have two teenage children whom we’ve equipped with cellphones so that we can communicate with them at all times necessary. I have to admit it gets quite frustrating when we text or call and get no answer – After all, that’s why we pay the bill and equip them adequately – so that we can connect with them whenever necessary! I wonder if God feels the same way? After all, He loves communications!
Long before “The Verizon Guy” (who recently became “the Sprint guy” ☺) came onto the scene, God had been asking this question for eons (see Hebrews 1:1, 2). The Bible is a living testament to the fact that God believes in communication. From Genesis 3:8 to Revelation 21:3 it reiterates God’s desire to commune and be with His children.
When was the last time you heard God saying “Can you here Me now?” Did you “pick it up”? Have you responded to His text or did you hit the “ignore” icon? Hey, I can understand that life gets busy, but wouldn’t you agree that He deserves a bit more of our attention? After all, He has paid the “bill” (see John 3:16) and has equipped us with the latest technology to communicate with us at all times necessary – prayer (see 1 Thess. 5:17, 1 John 5:14, 15)! If there were ever a time to communicate with God, it is now. Why not make time today? Maybe it’s been a while since you came to “His house”. Why not make plans to joins us? I promise you won’t regret it. We love to communicate God’s word straight from the Book! Our corporate worship is on Saturdays – and if that sounds funny, come and find out why!

God bless and we look forward to “connecting” with you soon!
