Get Ears to Hear

And He said, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.” ~ Mark 4:9

Jesus makes a rather odd statement after teaching. He says, “He who has an ear, let him hear.” This seems pretty odd because everybody has ears. He didn’t say all who have the ability to hear, let them hear. He said, “He who has an ear, let him hear.” Keep in mind that even the deaf came to Jesus. Therefore, Jesus must’ve been spiritually speaking. He was talking about our spiritual ears, not our physical ears. See, some of us are spiritually deaf. We hear the Gospel, but it doesn’t cut us to the heart. We hear the good news of God, but it doesn’t change us. We’re physically hearing these things but not spiritually; it’s like our spiritual ears have been cut off.

This is because the fire in us has grown cold. Our spirit has chased other spirits instead of the Spirit of God. We have to do more than go to church and hear the word of God preached on Sunday mornings. Those who taught the Scriptures in the time of Jesus led the persecution and murder of Jesus and His followers. We have to seek a relationship with Jesus, and in doing so, He will give us ears to hear. And once we have ears to hear, He’ll begin to mold our hearts to seek His Kingdom first above all else.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Get Ears to Hear.
