Listening for a specific sound

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Sunday, December 8, 2013
As I travel across the nations, I get an opportunity to meet so many different people and to hear their hearts. I always enjoy the interaction and soon one is able to discern the heart of those you get to listen to. My motive in this interaction is to look for and identify the sound of God's heart beating in those I come into contact with for I am only influenced by this sound and therefore eagerly seek it out. 

I consider it important to identify with like-minded, spirit-filled men and women, people who influence my heart through their lifestyles. We all know that words are only valued if they are backed up by action. To say one thing and to do it is two different things altogether and so, not only do I listen, but I also watch and it is here where one can discern the heart of those we come in contact with. 

I continue to maintain that out of our relationship with Christ, we soon begin to reflect His nature and that everything we are, points to this fact. Christ in us the hope of glory! We are therefore encouraged this day not only to seek out and interact with those who influence us, but more than this, to ensure that our lifestyles, reflects the nature of Christ and that we influence the hearts and lives of those around us.

Our love for our Father

Mark Labuschagne We are a vessel set apart, cleansed, emptied, consecrated; just standing, waiting every moment for God, in Christ, by the Holy Spirit, to work out in us as much of the holiness and the life of His Son as pleases Him We worship Him only!
