Are You Listening? (John 7:32, John 7:45-46)

Tommy BoringTommy Boring, November 8, 2015
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

God simply has to speak and things happen. God speaks to us still to this very day. The same voice that spoke the world into form. The same voice that calmed the seas. One simple thing about God's voice is that we all hear it unless it's hindered by our own sin. We get to a place where we are hardened to the truth. We hear God's word taught so often that we think nothing of it. The problem is not the speaker, but the one hearing. To those of us that are saved, He has already spoken to us and has cleared the doubt away. God has called but we lack obedience to do. God spoke to Peter and asked him several time if he loved Him. It wasn't that Peter couldn't hear Him. It was that God was asking him a deeper question, wanting a deeper answer. Peter wasn't listening with his heart, only his mind. Still to this day, God is speaking to us but we do not listen with our hearts. When God speaks it will either get rejected or accepted. Either way it will NOT go out void. We can blame our deafness on anything and everything but the truth is, it's our sins that causes it and our pridefulness to keep it. Do you feel that you've got a hard time in life? The work in others is not validation of Gods Word, God's Word is validation of itself. He speaks to everyone which is the validation.
