    Main Idea

  • Be Careful How You Listen


  • ~ Gospel of Luke 8:18 (NIV)

    Consider carefully how you listen.

  • As for you, son of man, your people are talking together about you by the walls and at the doors of the houses, saying to each other, Come and hear the message that has come

    from the Lord. My people come to you, as they usually do, and sit before you to hear your

    words, but they do not put them into practice.

    Ezekiel 33:30-32

  • Their mouths speak of love, but their hearts are greedy for unjust gain. Indeed, to them you are nothing more than one who sings

    love songs with a beautiful voice and plays an instrument well, for they hear your words

    but do not put them into practice.

    Ezekiel 33:30-32

  • ~ Gospel of Luke 8:18

    Consider carefully how you listen.

    Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even

    what he thinks he has will be taken from him.

  • 2Be Ready To Change

  • Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves.

    Do what it says.~ James 1:22

  • Dont fool yourself into thinking that you are a listener when you are anything but, letting the word go in one ear and out the

    other. Act on what you hear!~ Eugene Peterson The Message

  • Christians feed on Scripture. Holy Scripture

    nurtures the holy community as food

    nurtures the human body. Christians dont simply learn or study or use

    Scripture; we assimilate it, take it into our lives

  • in such a way that it gets metabolized into acts of love, cups of cold water [given in Jesus name],

    missions into all the world, healing and evangelism and

    justice in Jesus name, hands raised in adoration to the Father, feet washed in company with the Son.
