Hear His Voice – Part 8
Have you noticed that we have a lot of voices in our lives that are competing with the voice of our Shepherd? In this series, we are going to discuss two phrases found in John chapter 10. We are going to look at the “voice of our shepherd” and the “voice of strangers.” As we learn to discern the Father’s voice from the stranger’s voice, we will properly prune our lives of overgrowth and become trees with leaves that do not wither and that bear fruit in every season of life.
We will be addressing:
The voice of the Shepherd and the voice of strangers.
The voice of the soul and the flesh.
The voice of family.
The voice of this present world.
How to determine which voice to follow. Developing spiritual sensitivity.
Part 8 – In this message we look into the reality that sometimes stranger voices come through our church family. Mark 8:31-33, gives us the account of Peter speaking to Jesus under the influence of the devil. Jesus was teaching the people and the disciples concerning His soon-coming death and Peter did feel like this was the will of God for Jesus so he took Jesus aside and began to rebuke Him. In verse 33 Jesus reveals why Peter ended up being a stranger voice, He said, “You are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.”
