Listen to Jesus

Description

Ask Jesus to give you the ears to hear Him in every area in your life.

Focus Scripture: Luke 6:46-49 ESV

46 “Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’  

and not do what I tell you?

47  Everyone who comes to me  

and hears my words and does them,

I will show you what he is like:  

48 he is like a man building a house,  

who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock.  

And when a flood arose, the stream broke against

that house and could not shake it,  

because it had been well built.  

49  But the one who hears and does not do them  

is like a man who built a house  

on the ground without a foundation.

When the stream broke against it,  

immediately it fell,  

and the ruin of that house was great.”

***

Listen to Jesus.

Listen carefully to what He says.

Don’t just look around to see what everyone is doing or

take someone else’s word for it.

Listen to Him.

But, don’t just listen either.

Listen and then do what He says.

Take time to be alone with Him.

Away from all of the distraction, away from all the clutter,

away from your way of thinking.

Sit at His feet and listen, meditate, memorize, and pray.

But also do!

Do His Word.

Don’t be deceived.

Don’t be a hypocrite.

Don’t live in disobedience.

TAKING GOD’S WORD TO HEART

Take time today to ask Jesus if you are living His Word.

Ask Him if you have ears to hear or if there are areas in your life

that you need to bring under His control.

Don’t be afraid or too prideful to acknowledge that

something is wrong.

Now read what John says about obeying Jesus.

While you read, ask the Lord if there are areas in your life

where you are not listening to Him.

1 John 2:3-4

3 And by this we know that we have come to know him,

if we keep his commandments.  

4 Whoever says “I know him”

but does not keep his commandments is a liar,  

and the truth is not in him…

1 John 3:22

…and whatever we ask we receive from him,

because we keep his commandments and do what pleases him.

1 John 3:24 

Whoever keeps his commandments abides in God, 

and God in him. And by this we know that he abides in us,

by the Spirit whom he has given us.

1 John 5:2-3

2 By this we know that we love the children of God,

when we love God and obey his commandments. 

3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments.

And his commandments are not burdensome.

2 John 6

And this is love, that we walk according to his commandments;

this is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning,

so that you should walk in it.

Do you love Jesus?

Or do you love your sin more?

MEDITATE or MEMORIZE

Write out the following passage from Luke 6 and recite it 3 times.

Take it with you throughout the day.

47  Everyone who comes to me  

and hears my words and does them,

I will show you what he is like:  

48 he is like a man building a house,  

who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock.  

And when a flood arose, the stream broke against

that house and could not shake it,  

because it had been well built.   

PRAYER

Jesus, I want you to be Lord in every area of my life.

Please give me ears to hear.

Please help me hear your voice and follow your commands.
