Words Need Context To Be Properly Understood

We’ve all experienced the misunderstanding that occurs when words are taken out of context.  Therefore, the best way to understand what someone is saying is to appreciate the context of what is being said.

God relates to us by His word.  The context for His words to us are Jesus of Nazareth.  That is, the story of how God became a human being and lived in our midst, setting an example for how we ought to live for Him and in service to others, is the context of any word from God you might hear today.

Some people forget the context, and thus misunderstand what God is saying to them.
