TOPIC:
WHAT I HEAR OF HIM, I SAY

Read John 8:25-30*

MEMORISE
I have many things to say and to judge concerning you, but He who sent Me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I heard from Him (John 8:26).

EXPOSITION
A careful study of the life of Jesus Christ here on earth would show that, in relation to the Father, Jesus did not say anything of His own. He had a very indescribably cordial relationship with our Father in Heaven, even as Man here on earth. He was regularly in touch with Heaven, communing with, and receiving relevant messages from Him. A mark of His cordiality with the Father is that, He was regularly available to receive from the Father. No wonder, He had Word for everyone He came across, and solution for every situation He encountered. The humility and readiness to make Himself always available in God's presence also compelled Him never to say anything, anytime aside what He heard from the Father.
Of course, only fools talk anyhow. Wise people are careful with their choice of words—highly selective with their words and sayings. But, the only way to know and have the right word for every person and situation is to align with, and always hear from the Omniscient, who is always there to give new messages of the hour from time to time (cf. Lam. 3:23). Are you available for His tutelage, always? Learn from our Master Jesus. If He didn't take any step, or say anything without due consultation with the Father, should we do less?
No wonder we are admonished to be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God (Jas. 1:19-20). It can also mean, in the context of this Living Water dose, that we should be swift to hear from the Lord in His Word. To be able to do this, we must be slow to speak, since receiving from the Lord requires patient waiting, and we won't want to speak without having heard from Him. May the Lord help us. Amen.

PRAYER POINTS
1. Lord, give me the ear to hear what You say every moment, so that I will not be talking off-point at crucial moments.
2. Lord, I refuse to say what You have neither said, nor sent me to say. Always fill my heart with the message of the hour for every time.
3. Lord, help ministers who have gone far away from You but are still claiming to represent You on pulpits, back to Your righteousness before it is too late for them.

EXTRA READING FOR TODAY: 2 Chronicles 21 - 23 1 Timothy 3
