“Perhaps the greatest way we can love is to REALLY listen. Love listens.”


At one time, people heard God primarily OUTWARDLY.

Your own ears will hear him.
 Right behind you a voice will say, 
“This is the way you should go,”
 whether to the right or to the left. Isaiah 30:21 (NLT)

God calls us clearly now from the INSIDE. If we listen and follow, he saves us and keeps us secure.

11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd sacrifices his life for the sheep. 12 A hired hand will run when he sees a wolf coming. He will abandon the sheep… 14 “I am the good shepherd; I know my own sheep, and they know me…16 I have other sheep, too, that are not in this sheepfold. I must bring them also. They will listen to my voice, and there will be one flock with one shepherd…. 27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one can snatch them away from me, 29 for my Father has given them to me, and he is more powerful than anyone else. No one can snatch them from the Father’s hand. 30 The Father and I are one.” John 10:11-30 (NLT)

When I hear our loving God, the more I UNDERSTAND how to love.

22 For everything that is hidden will eventually be brought into the open, and every secret will be brought to light. 23 Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand.” 24 Then he added, “Pay close attention to what you hear. The closer you listen, the more understanding you will be given—and you will receive even more. Mark 4:22-24 (NLT)

When I hear His call to love, I must RESPOND.

So faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ. Romans 10:17(NLT)

For God says, “At just the right time, I heard you.
 On the day of salvation, I helped you.” Indeed, the “right time” is now. Today is the day of salvation. 2 Corinthians 6:2 (NLT)

That is why the Holy Spirit says, “Today when you hear his voice, don’t harden your hearts. Hebrews 3:7-8 (NLT)

When I ASK Him for what He WANTS me to have, He GIVES it to me.

13 I have written this to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know you have eternal life. 14 And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him. 15 And since we know he hears us when we make our requests, we also know that he will give us what we ask for. 1 John 5:13-15 (NLT)

When I hear Him, I want OTHERS to hear Him and TELL others about Him.


14 But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them? 15 And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? That is why the Scriptures say, “How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring good news!” Romans 10:14-15 (NLT)

But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves. James 1:22 (NLT)
