Listen to My Voice

Something to think.
Listen to My Voice
6 I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd. John 10:6
Not of the sheep pen. Though no one likes to think of themselves as sheep. This is the analogy that Jesus uses in describing humanity. The thing about sheep is they are pretty much defenseless. They don’t have large horns. They do not own superior speed they are not particularly fierce, and they’re  easily lead. When you think about the analogy, it sticks pretty well.  Spiritually speaking that is who we are. We are naked and blind in a spiritual world most don’t even recognize. We are led about by any ideology that suits our fancy. We will follow anyone that appears to have an intelligent idea even if we don’t understand it.
Jesus came to save, protect and defend the sheep. His intent is to provide for those who follow Him. His sheep will listen to His voice. Why? Because it is a voice, we know. It is the voice of God that is within you that has always been with you. It is the breath of God breathed into you that gave you life. It is the essence of who you are, and you already recognize it. It is a voice that you will know because it is part of you. The part that only understands the truth. The part of you that yearns to reconnect with the God that created you. It is the voice of God singular and clear that cuts to your very soul. It is the only voice that can touch the deepest recesses of your heart. It is the only voice that can fill the emptiness of your soul. And He the great Shepherd wants to take you home.

“Truly you are the Son of God”

Something to think about

“Truly you are the Son of God”

33 Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.” Matthew 14:33 (NIV) 

After walking on the water and calming the storm the disciples on the boat worship Jesus and recognize Him as the Son of God.  We have written records of the life and work of Christ. We have the documented death and resurrection of Jesus Christ . We have testimonies of what Christ has done in the lives of His disciples of old as well as present day followers. There is no practical evidence that He is not who his witnesses say He is. His claims and promises have never been disproved or negated. What more has to happen before you will say “Truly you are the Son of God.”

My Voice

Something to think about.

Voice

27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. John 10:27

Do you know the voice of Him who has called you, is calling you? Do you know the voice of God? Some may even wonder does God even speak anymore? Jesus rose from the dead; that did not occur so that He would be silent and hidden. He was raised from the dead to live and to be the first of the resurrection. The voice of God is not a singular sensation. It can be seen in the sunrise it can be heard in the quietest of moments. It is the idea that wakes you up in the middle of the night. It is at the moment of inspiration that moves you to action. It is the thought that comes out of the blue. It is wisdom. It is the bible. It is a voice the speaks in words. The voice of God is truth. The voice of God is in everything that is good and just. You see the voice of God is everywhere we just need to recognize, hear, respond to it and acknowledge it.

Glory and Honor

Something to think about

Glory and Honor

“”Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.”” Revelation 4:11 ESV

Glorify, honor, recognize and acknowledge God for what He has already done. What has He done? He created you He gave you life. The purpose of His creating you was and is so He can love you. By His will, everything in creation was created. He is worthy of glory, and honor and power just because He has always existed.
