“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Matthew 13:9.




Jesus said, “Listen, anyone who has ears!”


– Matthew 13:9.





Those of us who read Scripture and seek, humbly, to understand God’s Word,

find that, with God’s grace, holy patience and an open heart often reveal what the Lord is telling us.

It is such a blessing to hear our Master teach us, counsel us, direct us, console us and yes, even admonish us.

It is such a grace to be able to listen to Him and serve Him.


But we need also to be very aware of St Paul’s warning

and make sure that it will never apply to us:

“…the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine.

Instead, to suit their own desires,

they will gather round them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.

They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.” (2 Tim 4:3-4)






“Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching.

My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.

Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching.

These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.”


– Our Lord Jesus Christ (Jn 14:23-24)






Teach me, Lord, I am listening.

Lead me, Lord, I want to do as You say because Yours is the only Truth.
