Hearing the Voice of Christ
Welcome to another Thursday UNFILTERED substack article, the only substack newsletter that hates dreaming because dreaming is too much work. You are laying in your comfortable bed drifting off to sleep, and seconds later, you’re building a go-kart with your ex-landlord.
Ever since I’ve been a believer, I have been fascinated by the voice of Jesus.
Particularly how His voice is recognized by those of us who follow Him.
It’s a question that few Christian leaders have ever answered in a practical way.
That is, beyond the pat answer, “pray and read your Bible”-- which is inadequate when it comes to receiving divine guidance on the specifics of life.
My book Jesus Speaks tackled this very question.
Part 2 of the book is super practical, and many have said it’s the best treatment of the subject that they’ve ever come across.
As is the case with all my books, I write the book I want to read myself, but that doesn’t exist.
After years of searching for a book that covered the waterfront on how – specifically and practically – to recognize the Lord’s voice, I took on the herculean task of putting into print all the discoveries I made about it over four decades.
That’s why Jesus Speaks was written. (Len Sweet wrote of Part 1 of the book).
Last year, a lead pastor invited me to hold a 4-day seminar for his congregation.
The topic of the seminar was Reimagining Scripture and Prayer.
(In the future, I hope to release the messages from those 4 days as an online seminar. If this interests you, be sure to stay on the email list. That’s how we notify people about new resources.)
One of the messages I delivered during the seminar was entitled “Hearing the Voice That Has No Words.”
Based on the feedback from the congregation who heard the message live, I decided to pay it forward so others would be helped by it.
