I was a wrestler in high school, hard to imagine I know. During matches there were many voices yelling at me. My teammates, my coach, my parents, the cheerleaders, the fans,the other teams fans… it was hard to focus on who I was supposed to be listening to.
Sometimes an inner voice yells at us to justify behavior that isn’t Christ-like or demeans the value that we know have in Christ.
Then there are voices from the world (don’t be so radical, religion is a private affair, you are being intolerant, narrow-minded, old-fashioned. The Bible isn’t relevant, etc.)
Who are we listening to? Jesus? Or to something or somebody else? Be sure you are listening to the right voice.
