A plurality of voices and accents
God's work throughout history brings together different characters in different social and cultural contexts. It is possible to trace a line throughout the ages, that unites all these various elements to weave a coherent and beautiful tapestry as only God can.
The center of this work is the Lord Jesus Christ and the executor is the Holy Spirit. The purpose is "to gather all things into Christ in the dispensation of the fullness of time". God works by breaking down man’s ‘self’, so that He can express through him His thought and desire.
God's call for His church is still to place Christ at the top of its priorities; recognizing the signs of our time so that we can assist in the building of His house; and "keeping the unity" of the church, as it is so threatened from within.
Without a doubt, God speaks today. His voice sounds clearly in the midst of a plurality of voices and accents scattered throughout the world. May the Lord grant us that we may hear Him through these vessels as they contain and express Him.
