The Only Voice Left

19 Dec

The Only Voice Left…

A woman, caught in adultery, is surrounded by people who want to stone her to death. Just imagine being her. She’s hearing voices of condemnation, rejection, accusation and hatred.

Then Jesus comes and says, “Let the one who is without sin cast the first stone.” And an amazing thing happens… they all leave. The only one left is her and Jesus. He asks, “Woman where are your accusers?” “They are not here,” she answers. So He says, “Neither do I accuse you, go and sin no more.”

This is a beautiful picture of all of us. Often we hear so many voices: voices of rejection, criticism, accusation, doubt, jealousy, discouragement, and hatred. We also hear voices of flattery and praise. We can spend our lives listening to these voices and worrying about what they think.

Or we can stop wasting our lives dwelling on those voices and listen for the one and only voice that matters. His is the voice that will be heard in the end. So listen for His voice and obey Him, so that you may hear Him say one day, “Well done thou good and faithful servant.”

When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice. But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger’s voice.” John 10:4-5

Pay no mind to the voices. Open your ears to the only one Voice that matters. Listen for and obey your Master’s voice. His is the only one that will matter in the end!

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always
