I tell you the truth, those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life. They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have already passed from death into life. - NIV John 5:24
So many times we are asked to listen to someone or something and more times than not what we are listening to has an impact on us. I’m sure no one has approached you and said, “If you listen to my message and believe in my Father you will have eternal life.” If they did, it would probably be a good idea to listen. Everyday we listen to things that don’t have a lasting impact on our lives, but they are doing one of two things. They are moving us further away from God or closer to Him. Jesus’ message to us does more than move us closer to Him; it has the power to take us from death to life. Maybe it’s time to start listening for God’s voice in our lives and when we hear it, believe it and live it. In doing this, we will move from death to life. Today, the fifth day of the New Year, pray to be lead by the Spirit of Christ and move towards life.
