Listen To This!

There are a lot of voices out there. A lot! Facebook, Twitter, email, texts, news reports, conversations with friends, opinions of experts, sermons from pastors.

Jesus said,

I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not accept Me; but if someone else comes in his own name, you will accept him. (John 5:43)

How quickly I tune in to…

…that expert

…this esteemed pastor

…that doctor

…this teacher

…that specialist

…this author

…that friend

But all he or she can share is what he or she knows.

When Jesus speaks, it is with all the wisdom that is known, AND with all the wisdom that hasn’t even been discovered by man yet. He is all-knowing, all-wise, all loving. Jesus should always be my first and final authority.

Am I listening to His words? Or am I tuning in to someone else?

    Yes, right on! I just said to myself this AM, “turn your eyes ( and ears) upon Jesus, look full into HIS face.”


  2. Craig T. Owens Says:

    “To be painfully honest, some of us have strained out any parts of God’s Word that requires change in our lives. We are simply too invested in our selfish lifestyle to listen. …Jesus explained that there is a direct link between our response to these commands and our growth in experiencing His presence more deeply. …Obedience is a reasonable response to wise direction from someone who loves us more than we can imagine.”
    ~a quote from Freedom Begins Here
