CtL cover 200Week 3: Listening to the Father

Prophets  Christ  Spirit

Week 3, Day 7

Hebrews 1:1-2 (ESV)
Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world.

This past week, we have been listening to the voice of the Father, most recently as He spoke through the prophets. Next week, we will focus on listening to Jesus, the Son. The following week, we will be listening to the Holy Spirit. As we have seen, and are reminded by the author of Hebrews, God speaks in a plethora of ways, showing the importance He places on listening and how much He values communication in our relationship with Him. And as the writer of Hebrews continues in chapter 2:1 (NIV):
We must pay the most careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away. Reflecting on the first half of our listening exercises (today starts Day 21 of 40), how have you heard God’s voice?

What is the overarching, consistent message you have been hearing from the Father as Good Shepherd and Creator?

How has this transformed your relationship with God?

What do you hope to hear through the next half of our listening exercises?

Take some time in communion with the Father, thanking Him for the many ways in which He has spoken throughout history. Thank Him for the consistent messages He has always expressed—enumerate them, draw them, or celebrate them in song.

We would love to hear from you! Please share with us what you are hearing and how you are growing in your devotion to listening.
