The Word of God is to be preached - and heard.
Real hearing begins with listening. It doesn't end there.
preacher's message doesn't begin with himself. The preacher is a
messenger. The message comes from God. He has sent the preacher to
deliver His message.
The message of Jeremiah 6:16 is not just 'the
old ways are always the best ways.' How could there be progress if we
were always thinking like this? How could we move beyond the Old
Testament and into the New Testament? We are to look back to what God
has done. We are to build on it, as we move on with Him, into His
future. From the past, we learn about what God has done for us, what He
has said to us and what He requires of those whom He has redeemed. We
learn from the past, but we must not allow ourselves to get locked in
the past. God is the God of the future as well as the God of the past -
and He is the God of the past as well as the God of the future.
