" 5 But the LORD came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. 6 The LORD said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. 7 Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.”

Genesis 11:5-8 New International Version

It's fascinating today to look around us, this global phenomena. Technology has enabled the mind to come across so many different cultures, understand perspectives, study systems and so much more. And it is simply amazing how different we all are. It brings one to appreciate the glory of creation and almost like it gives us glimpse of magnificence. The Bible talks about a time when people were together, in fact they were so united together that everyone spoke the same language and understood each other extremely well. But then there came a time when they all came together and wanted to make a name for themselves. I find it so interesting how God responded to this and changed everyone's language.

We don't even know it, but today we have so many different languages and accents as a result of that event. Every person you pass by on the street has an accent, including yourself, and you may not even know it.

What fascinates me the most though is the fact that when the Spirit of God converses with us there is no accent, no dialect or world influence. It speaks to the very core of our being, the depth of who we are. The sacrifice of Jesus allows us to be united not only as people, but with the head of the body, Jesus, in a way we were not able to before. In that, there is conversation, motion and life. So take the opportunity to realize who He is and who you are in Him.

Explore. Experience.
