On at least six different occasions [5:21-22; 5:27-28; 5:31-32; 5:33-34; 5:38-39; 5:43-44] in this chapter we find words such as the words above. As I read these passages this morning, I was reminded to keep my eyes fixed on the scripture and my ears attuned to the Spirit, lest I become enamored and even entrapped by what the world and others have said. The question is never whether or not God is speaking, but rather, are we listening.
Those who hear and heed the voice of God walk to a different drumbeat, even if the path they take turns out to be a lonely road!!!
John 10:27, My sheep hear my voice … and they follow Me.
Just taking a moment to reflect!!!
