Hear His Voice and Live!

Most assuredly, I say to you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God; and those who hear will live.
John 5:25

I just love hearing these words from our precious Lord.  Our mortal bodies were once condemned to hell, destined to death.  We were dead to our sins, never being able to come before a Holy God who is a life giving being. Sin cannot enter into the presence of God,  but God tells us to hear His voice, to hear the voice of His Son so that we may have this life he wants to give.  That comes as we read God's Word and meditate on it every day.  If we hear His voice and repent, He will forgive us our sins; he will give us life, and life abundantly.  Not only does God make our spirit alive, but he has also promised us new bodies, a new Resurrection where we will be alive with Him for all eternity.  Such glorious things await those who trust in the Son, who hear His voice, and who hope for such things!
