Eze 33:30-32, John 14:15, James 1:22-25, Mark 4:3-9, 14-20

Some of our attitudes upon hearing God's word

  • Coming to worship service and listening to sermons with little expectations;


  • expected to be entertained

  • looking for good sermons to feed one’s appetite but have no intention to change

To truly listen is to obey, to act faithfully out of love.

  • To listen is to obey
  • Listening is not just blending in with the crowd
  • Listening bears fruit

Three actions: 

  • Pray for a soft heart and ask God to speak to you, maybe even open hands.
  • Avoid a consumeristic attitude
  • Practice listening and responding to God.
