This is the first of what I hope become regular posts, each listing a Bible verse related to God’s voice in our lives. I’ve been noting these for some years, and recently counted over 250 of them. So the idea is to post each of these, sometimes with a little comment, just noticing how much the Bible says about God speaking.
Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. Hebrews 1:1–2 (ESV)
One can’t help but wonder about all the things meant by these verses. Does God still continue to speak to us by His Son? Perhaps this is related to His command to “listen to Him” at the end of all the transfiguration accounts (Matt. 17:5, Mark 9:6, Luke 9:35), or Jesus saying that His sheep would listen to His voice (John 10:16, 27), or Paul being guided by the Spirit of Jesus during his trips (Acts 16:7).
This is a reminder that we are to be disciples of a living Lord, not one still in the tomb.
