Hard of Hearing

“…your ears are open, but you hear nothing.” Isaiah 42:20

During almost any baseball game, you will see a player or manager question an umpire about a call. Sometimes the discussions can become quite heated and the aggressor will be thrown out of the game. Yet no matter how much the person argues, and even if television replay shows that he is right, an umpire won’t change his decision (unless it’s regarding a home run, which is the only call subject to replay). Managers must find it extremely frustrating to argue a point, feeling confident that they are right, only to have their petitions fall on deaf ears.

Jesus knew what that was like. He often spoke in parables and frequently told listeners, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.” But He knew that many wouldn’t actually “hear” what He was saying. And 2000 years later, people still aren’t hearing His words. Don’t be one of them. Open your ears to the Lord’s message of salvation and eternal life through His sacrifice on the cross.
