Listen Up!

My Musings – Did you hear me and are you listening to me are two completely different things.  One is merely mechanical, occurring without effort, while the others requires a mental effort.  One detects, while the other perceives.  If one is a follower of Christ, they not only know the Master’s voice, they listen and follow.  They are not just hearers or the Word, they are doers of the Word because they are listening.

My Advice – Are we hearing without listening?  We know how frustrating that can be to us.  How disappointing it must be to God. But it can also be very dangerous to us.  There are many false doctrines (noise) out there that can easily deceive if we haven’t been carefully “listening” to what God’s Word has to say (meaning).  Make the effort to listen closely with discerning (mental processing) ears.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
