“Remember all music was once new music.” That’s the sign-off for a public radio music broadcast that features current compositions and performances. Sounds that wrap us in melody and memory today may have once jarred listeners.
The same theme applies to revelation. All revelation was once new revelation, that is, if with our Judeo Christian faith, we believe that God has entered history, called Abraham and Sarah, made a covenant with Moses, inspired Isaiah and the prophets, suffered with the Israelites in exile, and become one of us in Jesus Christ.
And all revelation is dialogue. Our God speaks and invites people into covenant, friendship, and mission.
What word is God speaking to you?
