… I will speak to you in a parable.
I will teach you hidden lessons from our past.
Psalm 78:2 NLT
Many today consider such language as the psalmist’s arrogant. Who is he, frail and weak human that he is, to explain the past to others?
The truths and secrets of the past, today revealed by God about his work in the world, can be explained and taught. They are not difficult nor are they some private interpretation. They are facts, commandments, promises, and stories that God himself reveals.
The Lord expects us to be faithful in the teaching and in practicing them as the church of Christ Jesus.
