An audience with One.

An audience with One.

Acts 21:34 “Some in the crowd shouted one thing and some another, and since the commander could not get at the truth because of the uproar, he ordered that Paul be taken into the barracks.”

“I can’t hear myself think!” I am sure we have all said that, well those of us in Britain anyway as it is one of our many sayings. Simply meaning it is too noisy.

There were mixed messages being shouted from the crowd and it was so noisy that it was just impossible to know where the truth lay in whom Paul was and what he had done. The commander ordered Paul into the barracks. The answers would not lay in the loudness of the crowd but in a one to one with Paul

Maybe today there are decisions to make. You need to turn down the volume. The traffic noise from all kinds of technology and people will try and prevent you from seeing and knowing the truth. The crescendo of different opinions can lead you not knowing what to do.

Shutting down the computer, turning off your phone and closing the door could be the most important things you have done for some time. The truth lies not in the loudness of the crowd but in the audience with the One. Who is that One for you?
