QT Matthew 17:1-13

February 16, 2016

In today’s QT, Moses and Elijah appears and talks with Jesus, then God speaks and says “This is my son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him!"

God commands the disciples to listen to Jesus. I know now that the disciples, as saintly as they may appear at first, are all deeply flawed and lacking, even the most faithful of them. They often fail to understand Jesus, and don’t really know what they’re doing. Yet, Jesus chose them, cared for them, and lead them. I don’t think this is any different today for all Christians, including myself. And the best and most important thing I can really do is just to listen to Jesus.

How do I listen to Jesus? He speaks through the Word, through fellowship, through prayers, through situations, but it is in me to want to ignore things that I do not want to see or hear. No one liked to told something they don’t want to hear except the wise. It’s sometimes a little scary to listen because of what I might hear.

Application: read 3 chapters, pray 15 minutes for wisdom to listen to Jesus
