Listen and Obey

Hebrews 3:15 It has just been said, “Listen to his voice today. If you hear it, don’t be stubborn. You were stubborn when you opposed me.”

This is my favorite verse in the whole Bible. I remember when I was wrestling with handing my life over to Christ’s control attending three different services where this verse was shared.

Since then when I am feeling down I like to read it in context

Hebrews 3:14- 16 We belong to Christ if we hold tightly to the faith we had at first. But we must hold it tightly until the end. It has just been said, “Listen to his voice today. If you hear it, don’t be stubborn. You were stubborn when you opposed me.” Who were those who heard and refused to obey? Weren’t they all the people Moses led out of Egypt?

For me it says it all: I am changed because of Jesus. He is in control and I am not. When He speaks my part in our agreement is to listen and obey.
