God Tells Us to be Quick to Listen Part II
Bible Verse James 1:19-20
So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.
As we read the words written by James through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, he tells us to be quick to hear. And we do so in humility, having our relationship with God restored through our faith in Christ Jesus our Lord. It's our relationship with Jesus that gives us the ability to be quick to hear and to be quick to listen before speaking. We are to be quick to hear the word of God and the promptings of the Holy Spirit as we live our day to day lives. And by doing so, we help the Holy Spirit to implant the word of God deep into our hearts as we study and listen to God's word.
The word of God is important to our spiritual growth and our walk with Christ. The Bible tells us in the letter to the Hebrews, "the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword which can pierce into the very depths of our soul." And once God's word is implanted into our hearts it can begin to produce a change in us which is evident in our day to day behavior. And it's this change by God which helps us to become quick to hear. And it's the Holy Spirit who teaches us the word of God as He illuminates or deepens our understanding of the scriptures as we read and study God's word.
