Luke 9:35: “And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: HEAR HIM.”
Men, we live in a very critical time. Innumerable voices cram for our attention. Some of the voices are not bad.. In fact, many of them are good, and some of them very good. And yet there is one voice above all others to which we should give our utmost attention--the voice of God’s well-beloved Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Family and close friends have a right to our attention, but there are other mediums we must watch regarding how much attention we give them. We live in a very media driven age. Almost everyone has a smart phone and other electronic devices to captivate their attention. Multitudes text and Facebook one another no matter where they are, but everyone seems too busy to listen to the most important voice of all.
Why should the chief voice of all, the “Only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords” be crammed out by voices that are unbelievably less important?
The voice of Jesus Christ, the lover of our souls, the only one who truly understands us, and the One who wants to lead and guide our every step on a daily basis waits patiently for us to listen to Him every day.
To be continued.
