Hearken to His voice

February 28, 2015 7:00 am

Today you are making this agreement with the LORD: he is to be your God and you are to walk in his ways and observe his statutes, commandments and decrees, and to hearken to his voice.” (Dt 26: 17)

“Hearken to His voice” means not only to “listen” but also to “obey.”  When we listen to the Lord’s “statutes, commandments and decrees,” it doesn’t mean, unfortunately, that we automatically will obey. Our God reminds us how important it is not only to listen but also “to walk in his ways and observe” His commands and how important it is for Him to be obeyed. All His “ways, statutes, commandments and decrees” are directed to the same goal—to be where He is and to love like He loves.

“Behold, now is a very acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation.” (Gospel Acclamation)
