On the third day there was a wedding at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Jesus also was invited to the wedding with his disciples. When the wine ran out, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.” And Jesus said to her, “Woman, what does this have to do with me? My hour has not yet come.” His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”
(John 2:1-5 ESV)
I have come to enjoy audibly listening to the Bible. I have read it much and at first upon discussion about listening to it, my initial response was that I preferred reading the words in the Bible because I am a lover of words and I like to take them all in. However, upon falling behind in a collective group reading plan [in which I am not a fan of whole Bible reading plans] I choose one day to begin hearing the words of the Bible as I drove to work, to catch up. To my great surprise, I came to realize that the audible hearing of it proved to present the scriptures as recorded in the Bible to me in a brand new way. In a sense I would be able to see a more vivid picture that was being painting by the author. Like viewing an aerial map I began to see the scriptures more acutely. For this, I now recommend listening to the Word of God, even as I recommend reading the Word of God. More importantly, I desire that all who hear or read the Bible will actually and ultimately experience the God who inspired it all. With that said, I now invite you Into My HEART.
