Operator, Give Me Jesus
Depending upon your age, you may or may not remember the old telephone systems where when you picked up the receiver (or dialed zero on your rotary dial phone) and said, “Information Please” to the switchboard operator, he or she would help you with your quest (this was before “4-1-1” and the internet.) Saying "Information Please" to the telephone operator was an open door into the big wide world.
There’s a tale about a young boy named Paul Villard who discovered a very helpful telephone operator and would call her quite often for help with all kinds of boyish questions and concerns. It is a heartwarming story of wisdom, guidance, kindness, acceptance, patience, security, and love … and is a reminder of how all of those attributes come from the Lord. ** Read the touching short story here. ** It is one you won’t soon forget.
2Timothy 3:14-15 – “But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; 15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.” Proverbs 30:5 - “Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.”
The Bible is our complete source of information ... it’s our “telephone operator, 4-1-1 and internet search engine”, only it is perfect and never-changing. God’s Holy Word is our authority and compass, pointing us in the direction we should go. It is full of wisdom, guidance, kindness, acceptance, patience, eternal security, Love ... not only for this physical, earthly life but more importantly, it holds the key to eternal life in heaven when we die.
Telephone operators provide a wonderful service still today. But when we call on Jesus, it is something we must do on our own ... the Operator or Google can’t do it for us. Jesus is the Living Word and is always there when we call (no ‘busy signal’).
The next time you “Google” something, why not search the Bible (downloadable PDF) for the answer instead?
