Listen for Their Voices

Written by Joyce C. Lock

If we truly believe knowledge will pass away; why spend lives competing to know about God, think our training is omnipotent truth, and war over doctrinal differences - causing separation of company from those not like us? Brother against brother is a testimony lost people notice.

When standing before God, He won't be asking what we believe, how much we know, or even where we studied. Though, we are accountable for 'who' we believe ... gods or God.

With humorous intentions, a young teen expressed interest in having a T-shirt designed to read, “I only do whatrepparttar voices tell me to do.” “The children of this world are in their generation wiser thanrepparttar 126885 children of light,” Lu. 16:8.

Jesus said, “My sheep HEAR my voice ... and they follow me,” Jn. 10:27. “Be more ready to HEAR, than to giverepparttar 126886 sacrifice of fools: for they consider not that they do evil,” Ec. 5:1.

For those who have no idea what I'm writing about,repparttar 126889 question is, "Do we have a choice in our salvation and every decision in our life, or are we puppets completing a play God has predestined us to fulfill? Scripture bares no contradiction once understood.

Fromrepparttar 126890 beginning of time, God (in His omnipotent powers) hadrepparttar 126891 ability to foresee, foreknow, and look intorepparttar 126892 future. Every human was created by Him and He would love every one. Thus, even allrepparttar 126893 earth would cry out there is a God, extendingrepparttar 126894 universal call to all that would receive. It was God's desire that no one would perish.
