listen-to-himWhile he was still speaking, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my one dear Son, in whom I take great delight. Listen to him!”– Matthew 17:5

God the Father had one piece of advice for everyone at the baptism of His Son – LISTEN TO HIM!

What incredible counsel! Jesus taught the disciples to listen to the Father. The Father is telling everyone to listen to His son.

Why is listening so hard? Often we are better at talking than listening. I know very few Christians who take time every day to listen to God. It takes discipline for husbands and wives to make time to really listen to one another. It takes discipline for a child of God to listen to the Father or the Spirit.

Take the Father’s advice and LISTEN TO HIM.

Make some time today—and LISTEN!
