“Is the voice of Jesus the loudest sound within you?” -Don Lessin
In Mark 9:7 God speaks these words, “This is My beloved Son: hear Him.” Today, many voices want to be heard. They speak through social media, film, publications, podiums, public squares, the halls of government, and the chambers of justice. Daily we hear the cries of culture demanding change and conformity to its will.
There is another voice-a greater voice, a true voice, a righteous voice, a wise voice. It is the voice of light, the voice of love, the voice of hope, and the voice of salvation. Jesus, the Word, is that voice.
His voice healed the sick, raised the dead, stilled the storm, cast out demons, and forgave the sinner. He alone could say, “I am the way. I am the Truth. I am the life. Come to Me and I will give you rest.” No one else can speak as Jesus spoke.
Jesus’ voice is above all other voices, and His name above all
other names. In a time of so much commotion, may His voice of “peace, be still”
quiet every troubled heart.
