Plain Talk

 

DSCN1679Scriptures tell us that while we are in this life we will not understand everything God has for us. There are mysteries within the scriptures that have yet to be revealed.

Now we see things imperfectly as in a poor mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God knows me now. ( 1 Corinthians 13:12 NLT)

There are also many scriptures that are “plain talk” scriptures. Jesus made Himself quite clear on many occasions. He simply told it like it is.

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:6 NKJV)

The only way someone won’t understand what Jesus said about “the way, the truth, and the life” is because they choose not to understand. They have other ideas, so they deny the truth. Plain talk says if you deny the “truth”, then you deny Jesus.

One point to keep in mind about God’s word, even with “plain talk” is that one must read and understand with the heart, not the intellect. There is no other way.

For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. (Romans 10:10 NIV)

  5. Too often people try to understand with their heads. There in lies the problem. We are not as intelligent or wise as God, and we think we are. Silly us.
