“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me” (John 10:27).
Greetings of the season to everyone, especially the great family of God in Christ. We are rejoicing this season because of God’s love and greatest gift to the world in the person of Jesus Christ.
If you are truly born again by willingly and sincerely accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour ( John 3:3-6), it is very important that you recognise and hear the VOICE of God in Christ and follow Him. Be very careful because not all those who say Lord, Lord, Lord, are true followers of Jesus Christ.
The truth is that in Christ, God speaks to us daily. Unfortunately, within the body of Christ, not many children of God are able to recognise and hear the voice of God in Christ.
How do you recognise the voice of God in Christ? It is believed that at any given time, a person may hear a voice from four sources: The voice of God; the voice of the devil; the person’s own voice or strong inner thoughts and the voice of others in direct or indirect contact or communication with the person. It takes the grace of God to be able to distinquish between these voices at any given time. Some people believe that that the voice of God is always a gentle still voice(1 Kings 19:12). The truth is that God has many ways of speaking to His children. What is required of us is to ask and receive the gift of discerning between spirits (1 Cor 12:10).
Prayer, fasting, worshiping God in Christ, create the right atmosphere and channel for voice of the Holy Spirit to be heard with clarity. The bible says:
“As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them”(Acts 13:2).
Beloved , if you can LEARN to hear from the Holy Spirit of God, and be led by Him, it would make your Christian life very interesting and exciting. How can you be a child of God but not able to hear from your Father? Sin, disobedience, separation and distance can keep us away from hearing from Him ( Isa 59:1-2). If we allow the words of God to dwell in our hearts and spirits, these will guide us into what the Holy Spirit is saying. The Scripture says the Holy Spirit only speaks what He hears (from the Word):
“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come “( John 16:13).
Without hearing from God in Christ, it will be difficult to follow Him. There are many people out there calling the name Jesus, but who are not followers of Jesus Christ. Jesus Himself said:
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber”( John 10:1).
Stay connected with JESUS, the Word and the Spirit of God. Be knowledgeable; Be wise; Be enlightened.
Become a Disciple, Ambassador and a Missionary for Jesus Christ as the redeemed of the LORD.
Ensure you think no evil against anyone.
Be compassionate and kind to one another.
Be sensitive to voice of the Holy Spirit.
As you read the bible and meditate on the word of God, may you receive the grace to hear and follow the voice of the Holy Spirit of God in Christ, in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Dear Father, please continue to frustrate, expose and flush out every pretender in our midst in Jesus name. Amen
Thank you Jesus for the season.
Blood of Jesus.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
