His Sheep Keep Their Baaa-lance (Balance) By Hearing His Voice –

People passing purposelessly through life have permeated our society. Perhaps we need to be penetrated with more purposeful living.

Those of us who hear the voice of the living, resurrected Jesus Christ are no longer the way we were! We are being continually transformed by His presence in our lives.

Jesus put it this way: “My sheep hear My voice.”

My sheep

So, when we meet for church, why don’t we allow His sheep/people to share the things that they’ve heard Jesus say to them? We do at The Salvation Army Berry Street, were everyday sheep/people show and tell what God has done! Check it out some Sunday morning @ 10:45 — 225 Berry St., Nashville, 37207.

We need to continually hear Christ’s voice in order to keep our mental, emotional, and spiritual baaaa-lance in life!


About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP

    I would love you to add some of your thoughts on hearing God. 🙂 Such a needed lesson to learn and many are hungry. http://sorayarosaria.wordpress.com/so-how-does-god-speak/

      Thanks, Soraya. I left this comment on your blog: Your six ways that God speaks are very good. #2, the inner voice, is probably the least accepted in the 21st Century, even by Christians. However, I believe it is the most important. Without the inner voice of God in our hearts, the rest become intellectual, rather than spiritual. It is the inner voice, the direct revelation of God, that makes us a believer.

      I believe that God is speaking to everybody on the planet. The problem is not that He isn’t speaking, but that we aren’t listening. We have also been brainwashed to believe that the voice of God is rare or unusual. However, truth is, He is continually speaking in the still, small voice through inner promptings, impressions, divine thoughts, pictures, the nudgings of our conscience, etc. We just need to begin to listen to them. And journaling is a great way to begin. You might discover that something you brushed off as merely your own thinking, was actually God’s voice!

  3. Amen Brother! Hearing directly from God is so important! Although we are the body of Christ each of us has a personal relationship with Him. He delights in communing with each of us on a personal basis. Every true believer has something to contribute. We measure it all by the Word of God to be sure that we have heard directly from the Master.
