Following Jesus is not first doing things for Jesus; it is first listening to him speak, and then doing what he says.
Peter, James and John were the cream of Jesus’ leadership team. Yet when Jesus was transfigured before them, Peter was unable to resist making plans to maximize this exciting new open door. Fortunately, a voice from heaven shut him up, commanding him to listen to Jesus (Matthew 17:5)!
It is easy to lead FOR God without listening TO him. The word listen or hear is found more than 1500 times in the Bible. That is why the most important question every one of us must ask throughout our days is:
In this podcast, I give specific examples of how I regularly apply this question to different areas of my life and discernment process. I apply it to:
- How I spend time alone with God
- How I prioritize my development
- How I read books
- How I cast vision and direction
- How I love my spouse and daughters
- How I prioritize my daily to-do list
- How I set agendas for board and team meetings
I trust that, by the end of this podcast, you will gain a clear picture of how this one simple, but very powerful, question can be applied to every other area of your life as well. May God meet you as you listen.
