Listen . . . with all your might; hear the living and active word. The teaching and preaching of God’s imperishable word is truly a sacred event whereby the Truth penetrates hearts and minds, consciences are quickened, sin is disclosed, salvation is offered, wisdom is imparted . . . if we listen, if we actively engage ourselves in hearing, if we participate as the Holy Spirit works in our midst.

But you never move beyond the Gospel to a more sophisticated or timely wisdom.  There is no more intricate or relevant wisdom than the cross.  God has nothing more to offer.  Its simplicity, which we take for granted, is also its complexity.  It is not moved beyond.  You don’t get over it.  You wade into it its vastness.  What should astound us is its ever-deepening and infinitely unfolding depth of wisdom.
