  • Read the Gospels thinking about what it tells you about the early church and what they were going through.
  • When doing Bible study, ask yourself this question: “What might have been the value to the early church of this teaching, story or example?”

4. Voice: 10.3-5, 8, 14, 16

  • “Obviously God must guide us in a way that will develop spontaneity in us. The development of character, rather than direction in this, that, and the other matter, must be the primary purpose of the Father. He will guide us, but he won’t override us. That fact should make us use with caution the method of sitting down with a pencil and a blank sheet of paper to write down the instructions dictated by God for the day. Suppose a parent would dictate to the child minutely everything he is to do during the day. The child would be stunted under that regime. The parent must guide in such a manner, and to the degree, that autonomous character, capable of making right decisions for itself, is produced. God does the same.” E. Stanley Jones
  • Three aids to hearing the voice of God:
    1. Scripture: “Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.” Psalm 119:105
    2. Friends: 1 Samuel 3:1-21
    3. Time: Psalm 40:1; Romans 8:25; Hebrews 6:15
  • Book recommendation: “Hearing God: developing a conversational relationship with God”, Dallas Willard
