Sit. Walk. Stand.

Week 10

It is a privilege to be able to call the King of Glory our Father. It is also a privilege that we should be allowed to hear from Him. Through His Word, through our fellow followers, and at times, directly from Him through the Holy Spirit. Though, to some extent, the Church has abused the idea of ‘hearing from God’, as followers of Jesus we have access to commune with and listen to God Himself. Whether that is in a “still small voice” as Elijah experienced in 1 Kings 19 or through His movement in our hearts through a movie, Jesus can and does speak to His followers. The two questions we must ask ourselves are: 1) are we listening and 2) are we willing to obey.

Much like soldiers in an army, when our King gives us a command, we should move on it. Is there an action item that Jesus has asked you to complete that you are currently unwilling to obey Him in? If so, today is a great day to repent and take action. Are you listening for Him to speak and guide you? If not, today is a great day to ask Him: “Lord, how can I serve You today?”

If you would like to begin a conversation about following King Jesus or more information on how He might be calling you to go, we would love to hear from you. If you have questions, please feel free to ask them here.

Over this series, we’ve been working through a few books to help guide our training. If you would like to check them out, you can purchase them below.
