Becoming a better listener


Church Family,

During my worship time this weekend I read something that I can’t help but share.

Jeremiah 35:15 I have sent to you all my servants the prophets, sending them persistently, saying, ‘Turn now every one of you from his evil way, and amend your deeds, and do not go after other gods to serve them, and then you shall dwell in the land that I gave to you and your fathers.’ But you did not incline your ear or listen to me. 

God is speaking to us persistently. Sending us the message that we need to be closest to Him. If we would only listen. How do you become a better listener?

First, spend time with God in His word.

Second, pray over what you have read and dwell on it throughout the day.

Third, trial and error through acts of Faith. Paul says it this way:

Ephesians 5:10 and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord.

Commit to living out what you read. When God points you in a different direction, be quick to turn to it. You are in a relationship with God. Relationships take time and effort. Know that God has spared no expense to save you and be known by you. Give your all to Him.

Ephesians 5:15-17 Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise,16 making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.

Fourth, repeat steps 1 thru 3. (A good help is to join a small group, Sunday school class, bible study, etc. Seek the advice of others)

Reminders:

  1. Tonight, we get to decorate for Christmas at 6pm. Come out and join us. Just as we preached last night, maybe your presence will make the difference. Come practice your Spiritual gift. (Food will be served)
  2. Tuesday at 6pm the Community Thanksgiving Service will be hosted by Juniper Bay. Please bring a dessert.
  3. No services this Weds night.
  4. Cold weather clothing drive ends this Sunday.
  5. The angel tree begins this Sunday. Come pick out a family with your family. We will take up an offering for those who are unable to go shopping but are willing to help those who will on December 3rd.
  6. I am praying for you today. May God make His voice clear to you as you practice your Faith each day.

Love, Serve, Go

Brian Winburn
