Liebster Alpha

I am very grateful to Pastor J from over at “Reinventing the We’ll” for nominating me for the highly coveted “Liebster Blog Award!” I also appreciate his approach in taking a few posts to participate, as these awards can become very long, even painful to digest.

liebsterIn part three of his challenge, he offers eleven questions to his nominees. A group of those questions center around hearing from God and teaching others God’s truths that we hear. Because these topics are weighing heavily on my heart at the moment, I’d like to take a stab at honestly sharing where I am on these.

That God is speaking loudly to His people, there is no doubt in my mind. The abundant availability of His Word alone should be sufficient evidence of that. Maybe the question could also be asked, “Am I listening?”

If so, then am I responding to what I hear? The answer is of course “yes.” We always respond to everything we hear, but does my response template the biblical expectation?

The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field (Matthew 13:44).

On this verse Jon Bloom comments, “Fifteen minutes before his discovery in the field, the thought of selling all that he owned would have seemed unwise to this man, even excruciating. But fifteen minutes afterward he was off to do it with joy. What made the difference?”

The treasure… the treasure revolutionized the man.

Liebster Beta assuredly must follow.
