Hearing (6)

Every day we pay attention to many things. If a friend tells us that a movie is good, we want to see it, too. When someone says that a book is great, we want to read it.
What if God says something is good? Do we pay attention to that? In today’s Bible Reading, God said that He was pleased with Jesus. Verse 5b says, “A voice came from the cloud. The voice said, ‘This (Jesus) is my Son and I love him. I am very pleased with him. Obey him!'”
We should always pay attention to Jesus. But maybe you have not been paying attention to Him lately. Maybe you have been listening to other people tell you what to do. Or maybe you have been ignoring the Bible and trying to do what you want to do.
Study the Bible and know that Jesus is talking to you. Remember that sheep know their shepherd’s voice (John 10:27). In the same way, we know when Jesus is telling us His commands, His promises and His wonderful words of life.
