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.
