Listening To Jesus

Listening To Jesus by Keith Cook

News Event: GoTeam Israel March 8-18, 2018. It is our prayer to Goodwill build bridges with the Jewish community and we might encourage local churches as they persevere in this blessed, yet troubled area.
There are so many voices calling to us today. There is the media. There is our culture. There are our associates. There also are supernatural voices calling to us today. 

Jesus Is Calling and So Is the Devil! 

"My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand." John 10:27-29

Jesus calls us to listen to His voice. The Devil hides behind deceit and deception. His tricks are numerous. He does not come as a hideous scary being but as a deceptive light or voice. He gently calls to everyone. He is calling and questioning you to reconsider any word you have received from God. He wants you to critically question your beliefs and precepts that you have found in the Bible. He wants you to scholarly reflect.

"Did God really say that?" is his favorite phrase.

Jesus' words are easy to understand and respond to.

Jesus says to Go quickly and Do His bidding. The Devil says Why not take it Slow, there's plenty of time!

Jesus wants all to Shout His words from the rooftops. The Devil wants all to Doubt His words are true and relevant today.

Jesus wants everyone to take the Gospel to every city and ethnic group. The Devil wants us to take it easy because tomorrow is soon enough to share Christ's love.

Jesus commands us to Go into all the world. The Devil says, Isn't it good enough to just go to church?

Who are we going to listen to? Who are you listening to: the words of life from Jesus or the lies of the defeated and toothless Devil?

Listen to Jesus and know that His words bring life, hope, peace, and comfort.

Resist the Devil, whose lies bring death, despair, turmoil, and agony.

How to hear God's words!

1. Read God's Word.

2. Talk about God's Word to others.

3. Listen to the teachings of God's Word.

4. Reflect and meditate on God's Word.

5. Continually do God's commands as found in His Word.

If you listen you can hear Him speaking to you even now! Listen, reflect, respond today.

Daily Prayer Focus: Pray for spiritual discernment as you seek to hear God's voice and respond in obedience to His leading in your life.  Pray for God's shield to penetrate the lies and deceitful tactics of the Devil.

On The Go Prayer Focus: The physical, spiritual, emotional, and financial needs of people hurting all over the United States and Worldwide. As God gives us opportunity in times of crisis we need to rapidly move to help. Praise God for each need He has met as our teams ministered in the Holy Land this week!
