His Voice is Life — Remember that we began this series with the desperation of Jesus, when He declared that man does not live by bread alone but by every Word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. The voice of God is food to our lives. There is a time to pursue God’s heart so that we can hear Him when He speaks to us. So hearing God is more than a choice, it a lifestyle committed to pursue Him. We draw out the voice of God by going deep into His heart. Whereas the pursuit of Christ is life and peace, laziness or deliberate ownership of weight and sin are the very opposite: they lead to subjection, brokenness, and death.
