Pay Attention To What You Hear

24 And He said to them, “Pay attention to what you hear: with the measure you use, it will be measured to you, and still more will be added to you. 25 For to the one who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away.” ~ Mark 4:24-25

Jesus told us to pay attention to what we hear, but why? Shouldn’t we hear all arguments and points of view before we come to our decision? Here’s what Jesus is saying. Pay attention to what you hear because the measure you use it will be measured to you, and still more will be added to you. It’s not about the general hearing but the hearing and believing that Jesus is talking about.

It’s hard to put everything into a word that you are not sure you can trust. In other words, not every word is for you. Maybe it’s not you that the LORD is prompting to sow that $1,000 seed. Maybe it’s your neighbor sitting next to you or in the opposite row from you. But if it’s you that God is speaking to, you had better obey. It is better to obey than to sacrifice.

Again, we can connect this to the servant with the five talents who turned it into ten talents. It is the fourth hearer who received a hundredfold. The flip side is this. If you receive a Rhema Word, and do not mix it with [(ho) Pistis], The Faith! And if you do not act on it, it will be taken away from you and given to him, who already has.

How long before that happens? I don’t know. Because God is a merciful and patient God, but nevertheless, from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. Whether it is in the here and now or in the Judgment, it will come to pass. For to the one who uses [(ho) Pistis], The Faith, with the measure that he is given, it will be measured back to him, and still, more will be added.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Pay Attention To What You Hear.
