Pressed by the time of current culture? Listen for The Voice and press back
In the crush of Christmas prep, hustle and bustle, God timestamps a passage in John 10.
The pressure to conform to cultural expectations is unavoidable. Our response is a decision.
The pressure was on Jesus in this passage. But He pushes and pivots to release some of the most encouraging words....ever.
In this time, when there is so much pressure about finding and buying the right presents, Jesus declares that YOU were given to Him by the Father: YOU'RE a gift to Jesus.
How cool is that?
And furthermore, that NO ONE can snatch you out of His hand.
And, that the QUALITY of the Life that's set in you is one that endures forever.
But here's the part that God has been using to hammer me:
YOU ARE KNOWN...
I mean really, really, really known. Better than you know yourself or can see yourself.
The True Voice of the Shepherd is speaking into the deep core of who you are.
Jesus looks past your own self-concept and says,
"I KNOW who you are."
Do not submit to the press of the culture. Listen for the Sound of His Voice.
It's calling out even here and now to your deep heart.
You are known and it is stirring you to respond and to follow.
