April 10, 2016 Towers
The Tower of Babel was a human feat of exceptional proportions, beyond brilliant, an amazing act stewarding human resources to the zillionth degree. The tower rose high based on their ability to agree, to express their ideas, to work efficiently, and to coordinate their skills. Their work ethic rivaled any Mennonite. They watched the tower rise! These men and women understood how to get things done and they actually did it! They celebrated their ingenuity, their brilliance, and their intelligence and dedicated their strength and glory to the one they loved - THEMSELVES. The party must have been massive.
Today many of us will go to our own man made edifices and we'll call it church. We will have no need to ask God any questions for we have it figured out. We're good, we're all good.
A good man by the name of A. W. Tozer once said, "If the Holy Spirit was withdrawn from the church today, 95 percent of what we do would go on and no one would know the difference. If the Holy spirit had been withdrawn from the New Testament church, 95 percent of what they did would stop, and everybody would know the difference."
Listen and know there is only one tower- the name of Jesus!
