Oh, thank you Jesus for your ears that heard the sinner’s cry and the plea of the sick. You dear Jesus also heard the voice of the Father and made know His will and way.
Thank you Jesus that even today you hear our prayers and cry and come in your mercy and grace to meet our needs in your riches in glory.
The following are just a few of the scriptures about Jesus hearing and responding to people.
Now when Jesus heard that John had been put in prison, He departed to Galilee .
When Jesus heard it, He marveled, and said to those who followed, “Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel !
When Jesus heard that, He said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick.
When Jesus heard it, He departed from there by boat to a deserted place by Himself. But when the multitudes heard it, they followed Him on foot from the cities.
And behold, two blind men sitting by the road, when they heard that Jesus was passing by, cried out, saying, “Have mercy on us, O Lord, Son of David!”
Then the multitude warned them that they should be quiet; but they cried out all the more, saying, “Have mercy on us, O Lord, Son of David!”
So Jesus stood still and called them, and said,
“What do you want Me to do for you?”
They said to Him, “Lord, that our eyes may be opened.”
So Jesus had compassion and touched their eyes. And immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed Him.
“I have many things to say and to judge concerning you, but He who sent Me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I heard from Him.”
“But now you seek to kill Me, a Man who has told you the truth which I heard from God. Abraham did not do this.
Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when He had found him, He said to him, “Do you believe in the Son of God?”
He answered and said, “Who is He, Lord, that I may believe in Him?”
And Jesus said to him, “You have both seen
Him and it is He who is talking with you.”
Then he said, “Lord, I believe!” And he worshiped Him.
When Jesus heard that, He said, “This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it.”
So, when He heard that he was sick,
He stayed two more days in the place where He was.
Then after this He said to the disciples, “Let us go to Judea again.”
Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead man was lying. And Jesus lifted up His eyes and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me.
Today dear friend you can speak to Jesus or as we call it, pray! Jesus will hear you and respond to your cry.
This same Jesus that heard the voices of people when He walked this earth will hear your voice today. The living resurrected Savior the Lord Jesus welcomes you. Come to Him now.
I encourage you to read the past several weeks columns as I have been thanking Jesus for different parts of His Body.
