Can You Hear?

Can You Hear?
“If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.”
Mark 4:23 (KJV).
Did you ever say something to a friend just to find out he did not hear a single word?
Why did he not hear?
Did you ever sit in class, listening to the teacher?
When you have to do the homework, you realize you do not know what to do?
Maybe your friend was thinking something else while you were talking to him.
Maybe you did hear what the teacher said.
You just did not understand his explanation.
Whatever the reason for not hearing, the result is sad. How well do you hear Jesus?
Do you understand what He says?
To hear is not enough.
You need to understand what you hear.
Can you understand Jesus?
Understanding what you hear enables you to do.
“But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.” James 1:22(KJV)
Self-deception is pretending to hear when you do not.
Worse still is hearing and not understanding.
Philip asked the Ethiopian Eunuch:
“And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest? And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him.”Acts 8:30-31(KJV)
Do you know God’s purpose for your life?
Are you hearing Him Daily?
Are you doing what He has asked you to do?
Application to the Christian life:
Learn to understand the word of God.
Listen to what Jesus says.
Do what He wants you to do.
