The importance of ‘listening to’ Jesus

Posted by admin on 15 November 2020 in John, Luke, Mark, Matthew, The Book of Romans |

‘Hearing’ is prerequisite of ‘believing’ (Romans 10:17).

I. It is God’s will (command) for us to listen to Jesus.

See Matthew 17:5.

While he was still speaking, a bright cloud covered them, and a voice from the cloud said, ‘This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him!’

Mark 9:7 and Luke 9:35 also testify God’s voice from the cloud.

II. ‘listening to Jesus’ shows that you are on the side of truth, and you belong to God.

They couldn’t fully figure out truth when they only had the law, and Jesus came to reveal truth. Ironically, some teachers of the law didn’t listen to Jesus but opposed Him. This showed they were not on the side of truth as Jesus said,

Everyone on the side of truth listens to me (John 18:37b).

Whoever belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.’ (John 8:47)
