Sept 3 – Confusing Messages

I looked at the signature of a prominent Islander recently, It was impossible to tell whose it was. And It is estimated that businesses in North America are losing more than 100 million dollars a year because of errors that can be traced to illegible hand writing. These include billing mistakes, poorly written orders, and undecipherable bookkeeping entries. But how good it is to know that God does not give His messages in such a confusing manner. His message, concerning life here and hereafter, is very clearly given. For example- “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Or this, “Christ died for our sins” And really, you can’t get much plainer than the invitation God extends when He says, “whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” It was Will Rogers, actor comedian, philosopher who, speaking honestly said, “My trouble with the Bible is not the parts I don’t understand, but the parts I do understand.” Get the message?
