Just Listen--by Timothy A. Southall

John 10:1-11What made me believe in Christ? Did I hear the Voice of God? Why did I choose to follow Christ?

There are two "voices." One will tell you that you were made in the image of God. Another will tell you that you can be a god. One will tell you that you are to have no other Gods before Him. The other says to worship him and the kingdoms of the world can be yours. One will tell you to worship Him with all of your heart, soul, mind, and body. The other says you may do with your heart, soul, mind, and body as you please.

One came in the form of His Son to save us. The other tried to stop Him by killing Him. One went before us to show us the way. The other wants us to follow him into the very depths of hell.

The choice is yours. You can listen to the One that is Truth itself and have eternal salvation. Or you can listen to the father of lies and spend eternity with weeping and gnashing of teeth, to put it mildly.

Just listen. Maybe you will hear the Voice of God calling you. It may be a deep feeling in your heart or even the feeling that something is missing in your life. Jesus came to earth and died for you. He was resurrected to life on the third day and defeated death and hades. The choice is yours.

"My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me."
--Jesus (John 10:27 NIV)
Just listen!
