Becoming Fluent in the Good Life and Avoiding Self-Indulgence
Like ancient Israel, all of humanity before and after need a fluent speaker to show us what is right, good, true, and beautiful. We need someone to show us how to live the Good Life God always intended for us.
Jesus is truly a fluent speaker. He taught and modelled the difference between good and evil so that we might come to know how to seek the good and avoid evil. Only when we listen to him will we truly know what is the good, pleasing and perfect will of God (Rom 12:2).
