Listen to God

Listen to God

Jesus is very plain and clear what he says to us. Jesus challenges us listen and hear what he says. We should know his voice when we hear it. Jesus will not deceive us or send us in the wrong direction. Jesus is plain and Jesus is clear.

Jesus, the Messiah (Anointed King), challenges us to act. Our job is to listen to him and then follow him. Jesus will lead us into Godly action. Jesus only does what he hears his father saying to him. Our job is to only do what we hear Jesus saying to us to do.

Let me set this before you as plainly as I can. If a person climbs over or through the fence of a sheep pen instead of going through the gate, you know he’s up to no good—a sheep rustler! The shepherd walks right up to the gate. The gatekeeper opens the gate to him and the sheep recognize his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he gets them all out, he leads them and they follow because they are familiar with his voice. They won’t follow a stranger’s voice but will scatter because they aren’t used to the sound of it.

(John 10:1-5 The Message)
