He is speaking, am I listening?

November 24, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Continue to be stuck in Psalm 95:7 “If only you would listen to his voice”  despite all the beauty of verses 1-6. NT reading was Mtt 3 for yesterday and Col 1:9-23 today.  Psalm 95:8 took me back to Numbers 20 when Israel was complaining about how much better it was in Egypt–hardened hearts says Psalm 95; disobedience according to Heb 4:6 prevented them from entering into God’s rest.  And Hebrews warns that disobedience on our part will prevent us from enjoying the rest God has promised for us.  Even Paul, after talking about the richness and beauty of Christ and the fundamental changes he has wrought in us, warns us, “But you must continue to believe this truth and stand firmly in it.  Don’t drift away from the assurance you have received when you heard the Good news.” (New Living) I even notice the rebuke to the Pharisees in Mtt 3.  I guess the Lord is trying to get my attention.  Hmmmm
