God’s Word is the means whereby we come to trust in Jesus and learn to live for Him. Yet as Jesus taught, we must have “ears to hear” the truths contained in Scripture. Alistair Begg warns that even Scripture’s most important truths will not impact us until we are awakened by God’s grace and Spirit. When we open our Bible, we must consider it carefully, believe it thoroughly, and practice it diligently—and God will graciously reward our careful consideration.
21And he said to them, “Is a lamp brought in to be put under a basket, or under a bed, and not on a stand? 22For nothing is hidden except to be made manifest; nor is anything secret except to come to light. 23If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear.” 24And he said to them, “Pay attention to what you hear: with the measure you use, it will be measured to you, and still more will be added to you. 25For to the one who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away.”
