The Ability to Hear

Sub - Theme: The Important Need of Spiritual Maturity!

Scripture Text: John 10:1-5, 27
Opening Thoughts: In our daily spiritual experience it’s very important that we seek to grow to a greater sense of spiritual maturity! When growing in the spirit it’s not just growing in knowledge of the Word but more important growing into spiritual sensitivity having the ability to discern and to act upon the Voice of God! We live in a society today that many people can throw around scripture but yet they haven’t been transformed by the washing and cleansing of the Word! They might look the part but they must become spiritual products of the very things they profess and in some cases teach. They’re spiritual abilities that equip the Saint with spiritual ears to hear His Voice.

John 10:1-5 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.

John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

Notes: Some other way- False Doctrines

The thief and robber - False Prophets
The Shepherd - Jesus
The Porter - The Holy Ghost

John 15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

The Porter is the gate keeper of the soul. He opens the door and let’s Jesus come in and as we mature in the spirit, His voice becomes a continual voice that ministers to the needs of the soul and the Lord knows you by name and you in return know His voice!

1Corinthian 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

1Thessalonian 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. Pastor Larry F. Gregg
