“While he was still speaking, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and behold, a voice out of the cloud said, ‘This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased; listen to Him’” (Matthew 17:5)!
The voice of Jesus is our only source and resource for understanding and implementing the life of faith into practice. For this to be accomplished we must be obedient to the specifically stated directive of the Heavenly Father — “Listen to Him.” To whom are you listening? Who or what is forming your opinions and response on any given subject? Political parties? Your favorite twenty-four-hour news outlet? Dare to actually listen to the voice of Jesus as found in the gospels, and you might discover a difference between him and them.
