LISTEN CAREFULLY

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

Heb 2:1-5

So we must listen very carefully to the truth we have heard, or we may drift away from it. 2 For the message God delivered through angels has always stood firm, and every violation of the law and every act of disobedience was punished. 3 So what makes us think we can escape if we ignore this great salvation that was first announced by the Lord Jesus himself and then delivered to us by those who heard him speak? 4 And God confirmed the message by giving signs and wonders and various miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit whenever he chose.

NLT

It is possible to listen and yet not listen carefully.

God expects us to listen carefully and understand the message of the gospel because it is only when we understand it that we grow.

Jesus has come to give us salvation. He has come to save us from bondage and slavery. When we believe Him and accept Him we have salvation. Salvation is received by grace for we are saved by grace through faith and this faith means believing in Jesus and in His power to save you.

One of the ways that a man can neglect this salvation is by coming to the lord through faith and then thinking he can be made perfect through the works of the flesh or the works of the law. This is what happened to the Galatian churchsee Galatians 3). Your salvation is not because of your righteousness, your salvation is because of your unrighteousness.

Jesus has come to make you righteous so don’t ever think that there are any works you can do that would qualify you for God’s blessings. All you need to do is to continually believe and depend on Jesus for life, life being the power to function in the kingdom of God and in this world.

Believe and trust in Jesus for the life that you need to operate in His kingdom. Have a constant link with the father by talking to Him all the time in your heart- making melody in your heart always to the lord. This can only happen when you don’t feel condemned before God. When there is any unresolved issue in your life, don’t run away from God, run to him to get cleansing and grace. He loves you more than you can ever know and He understands your frame.

Let the grace of God abound in your heart by trusting totally in Him and obeying Him.

Go into today not forgetting to keep a constant link with your father in heaven by always talking to Him- making melody always in heart unto the father.
