Love is a Remedy for Hearing Loss
Today’s readings are Micah 1 – 4 and Hebrews 6. We are reading from the New Living Translation.
Yesterday’s reading was about our hearing, and how to avoid dullness of hearing by savoring the milk and the meat of the Word of God. This was the remedy for hearing loss and dullness. Today we expand upon this thought. Love is remedy for hearing loss, particularly love for other Christians. The writer here says,
For God is not unjust. He will not forget how hard you have worked for him and how you have shown your love to him by caring for other believers, as you still do. Our great desire is that you will keep on loving others as long as life lasts, in order to make certain that what you hope for will come true. Then you will not become spiritually dull and indifferent.(Heb 6:10-12 NLT)
If we put God’s Word into loving action for God’s people, then we will not become indifferent and dull of hearing. The remedy for dullness of hearing and hearing loss, is to savor the milk and the meat of God’s Word and to put that Word into loving action, for God’s people and this world. When we do that we anchor ourselves to the anchor of our souls. We experience the with-God life.
Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary. Jesus has already gone in there for us. (Heb 6:18-20 NLT)
Our hope in God leads us into the sanctuary where Jesus has already gone, for us. This with-God life is a life in God’s presence, anchored to Him and his purposes. It’s a life where we experience our utmost joy and His ultimate glory.
Hear Him. Be anchored in His love and know the joy of life in Him. It’s a life of transformation, and it is available to all of us.
