Jowett: right listening

Friday, September 23, 2016
    If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear.
    —Mark 4:23 (ESV)
    When a man listens to the voice of the tempter within him, he is inclined to do as others do, not to resist when the temptation seems great. But when he looks into the law of God and hears the words of Christ, his natural sense of right and wrong is restored to him, and he becomes elevated, purified, sanctified.
    ... Benjamin Jowett (1817-1893), Sermons on Faith and Doctrine, London: John Murray, 1901, p. 259 (see the book)
    See also Mark 4:23; Matt. 11:15; Mark 4:9; 1 Cor. 10:13; 1 Tim. 4:13; Heb. 2:18; Rev. 2:7
Quiet time reflection:
    Speak Your law into my heart, Lord.
