Message for January 19 - Are You Ready to Hear His Voice?

Hello family and friends. What a delightful time we had at church yesterday!  Priscilla reminded us that our hope is in Jesus and Pastor David showed us how we should see Him.  But the best thing of all, the thing that makes the angels in Heaven rejoice, is that Shelly has decided to follow Jesus and has been welcomed into our church family!

This Sunday, I have the honor of sharing with you again.  I want to ask you a question that was asked of me once as a teenager.  I had gone through a time of questioning, thinking that serving God was just more than I could handle, but I came back and repented at the altar.  I told God and the man who was praying with me that I just wanted to hear His voice. I may never know whether the man truly spoke for God or not, but I think he did.  He asked, “Are you ready to hear My voice?”

What a question!  How many of us have said to the Lord, “Just tell me what You want and I will do it.”  Would we? Are we truly ready to hear from Him? He said, “… From everyone who has been given much, much will be required…” (Luke 12:48)  Are we ready for the cost, the responsibility and the reward that comes from that kind of relationship with Him?  If we’re really followers of Him, do we have a choice?

27 “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; 28 and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand.

Join us this Sunday!
