Do you remember asking your children to do something? You could ask many times and they wouldn’t seem to hear. We know more about this subject than we let on because we were children once too! Apparently my own mother would call us 4 boys to come in for tea, but it seemed to fall on deaf ears. We were so engrossed with what we were doing, usually playing football, that we simply didn’t hear the call. However, we as adults can fall into the same trap of not hearing the truly important commands because we are too preoccupied with the things around us.
Some important verses are found in John 5:24-29, ESV.
“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life. Truly, truly, I say to you, an hour is coming, and is now here, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live.”
“For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself. And he has given him authority to execute judgment, because he is the Son of Man. Do not marvel at this, for an hour is coming when all who are in the tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who have done good to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil to the resurrection of judgment.”
Listen and obey the call of God that is being presented around you? God’s call is powerful, follow Him today.
