If your life seems empty…perhaps you are ignoring your Inner Voice?
(Listen to my song “Listen to Your Heart” by clicking HERE)
Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat down, and the whole crowd stood along the shore.
Jesus was quite the attraction. But he did not want to be a celebrity.
While our culture flocks to worship celebrities who identify with their power, prestige and wealth…Jesus identified with no thing.
His identity was not attached to the stuff of this world. He spoke of equality, justice for the poor, compassion, humility and detachment from possessions…not renouncing them but just not identifying with them.
While our culture promotes and esteems competition as the pinnacle principle to success (as in climbing to the top)…Jesus promoted service and reaching out to help those who were left behind or cast out (as in joining those at the bottom).
Jesus never preached winning…but rather helping the one who is losing.
While our culture clamors to attain more…more and more…Jesus calls us to aspire to attain less. The less you have…the less opportunity for attachments.
Power, prestige and possessions will never satisfy on the soul level.
If you are looking for soul satisfaction…why not turn to the man who said he was “the way, the truth and the life” (John 14:6)? Crowds came to hear Jesus speak.
Do we make the same effort to listen to him speak through scripture and quiet meditation?
Set aside some time to simply sit and listen.
It just might change your life…and set you free.
