John 14:26 But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.
Commentary: God speaks to us through the Holy Spirit.
Hebrews 1:1 In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe.
Commentary: In Christ's lifetime, He spoke directly to many thousands of people. Today, we are blessed by God's gift of Christ's written words. However, Christ is not past tense. He is a living Savior who speaks to us by our understanding of His very nature and character. We hear God's words more clearly when we understand the very nature of who Christ was and how He lived.
Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing the soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
Commentary: God speaks to us through His Holy Word. Notice its power. While we as humans fail at changing our friends, family, even ourselves. No person can enter the living world of Scriptures, spend time in its wisdom and leave without being changed.
