Pretty soon after introducing Jesus as the way to life, the author John pens two critical words for those interested in life. Hear and Follow.
I wonder how much my expectations cloud what I hear. Most of the time, we think of hearing God through a small whisper. I expect God to be proper, almost subtle, and of course He can be. He can speak to me through the words of someone else. He can speak through a book or movie. He can speak through a quiet thought that passes through my brain. So, I start expecting that more.
What if we expected something different? I'm going to start asking for a different kind of hearing. Something more like this.
