Subject: taking the call
Sometimes you have to turn the ringer down on your phone and you may miss a call. Hopefully, if it's important, they'll leave a message. Sometimes a call comes in and when you see who is calling you are excited to hear from a family member or friend (and then you pick up). Sometimes a call comes in from an unknown number and the message left indicates an unwanted sales call. But how do you respond when the call comes to your heart from Jesus? Do you have the ringer turned down? Is your heart on "silent"? Do you see who is calling and ignore Him?
Jesus calls us individually. He knows our number. He seems to prefer to speak directly to us rather than leave a message. But if He does call He has a message of freedom for you!
John 10:3-4 "...The sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. A stranger they will not follow, but they will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers."
