In Touch Daily Devotions 2 July 2022 MESSAGE
What distinguishes a believer from an unbeliever? Jesus pointed out that His sheep know Him, hear His voice, and follow Him. They’re the ones He died to save, and when He called them, they responded in faith and repentance, receiving Him as their Lord and Shepherd.
But hearing Christ’s call to salvation is just the beginning of a lifetime of attentiveness as He leads and directs our steps. Jesus told those who believed in Him, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly My disciples” (John 8:31). It’s essential that we recognize His voice and refuse any that contradict Him.
God’s voice is heard through Scripture. That’s why making time to listen to Him through His Word is vital. As we fill our mind with biblical truths, the Spirit uses them to teach, rebuke, correct, and train us in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16).
Whatever you hear, always compare it with the Scriptures so you can differentiate between God’s truth and human logic or philosophies. As you become more familiar with Christ’s voice, be prepared to drop some of your preconceived ideas in order to align your thinking with His Word.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalms 112-118
THOUGHT FOR TODAY: Many voices compete for our attention, but abundant life comes when we listen to our Good Shepherd.
