God knows how to connect with those who are humble and who revere Him
God knows how to connect with those who are humble and who revere Him regardless of their religious heritage.
God spoke to the wise men of the East concerning the birth of a heavenly King and led them to Christ through a star; they travelled nine hundred miles with a great entourage of guards and gifts in order to worship Jesus. But the Jewish leaders in Jerusalem, a mere six miles away from Bethlehem have no clue where Jesus is. And these Jewish leaders did not appear to resist Herod’s attempt to kill the Child. As in the case of the wise men, God communicates with those who are pure and humble even though they may not be well acquainted with the bible and with the things of God. Believers must not just gather knowledge, but seek to purify their hearts with the truth of the word and the Spirit. Knowledge, depending on the hearer, either puffs up or builds up. Humble people have an uncanny way of discerning God’s voice and truth. It is a mistake to think that God speaks only through the church or the bible. Many may not come across as cultured, but their humility, purity and loyalty are ready channels through which God will communicate with them.
