Listening to God
The Bible is a compilation of God’s letters to us, and it is the primary way He speaks to us. When we read the Bible, we are reading God’s words and God’s Truth. We can learn so much about who He is, His will, His purpose for our life, all that’s available to us as Christians… all by reading the Bible.
All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. – 2 Timothy 3:16
Am I listening well?
Oftentimes we hear questions like, “When I am reading the Bible, how do I know that I am listening well?” This is a great question that many people ask. Here are three things you can keep in mind as you read the Bible. If you do these things you will be able to assure yourself that you are a good listener.
- Acknowledge that God wants to talk to you.
- Allow God’s words to draw you to His heart, help you turn away from sin and grow your faith.
- Apply everything you learn.
Today’s challenge after watching the video
