Hear me, you heavens! Listen, earth! For the LORD has spoken…

Isaiah 1:2

How vital it is to listen when the Lord speaks! To each of the seven churches in Revelation 2 and 3, to whom John is instructed to write, the message was the same, He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. Vital then, and vital today, two millennia later. When God speaks, everyone needs to listen. For the unbeliever to block their ears, the result will be devastating eternal consequences. For Christians, a failure to listen and obey God’s voice is quite simply a tragedy of lost opportunities for service.
