Ed Chappelle: Can You Hear Me Now?
Alexander Bell was one of the primary inventors of the telephone. On March 10, 1876, his hard work paid off culminating in the first successful telephone call. One hundred and twenty-six years later, a communication business started an advertising campaign with Paul Marcarelli, known as the “Test Man.” The Test Man would speak into a cell phone the words, “Can you hear me now?”
Even with the invention and successful use of the telephone, Mr. Bell still couldn’t claim he was the first to call out to mankind. God, the Creator of all things, was the first to call out to mankind. Genesis 3:9 reads, “But the Lord God called to the man and said to him, ‘Where are you?'”This is akin to Him saying, “Can you hear Me now?” God calls, but do we answer, “Yes, Lord.”?
