Scripture Notes on Mark 9

“And a cloud overshadowed them, and a voice came out of the cloud, ‘This is my beloved Son; listen to him.'” -Mark 9:7

There is a difference between hearing Jesus and listening to Him.

There is a difference between seeing Jesus and experiencing His fullness.

The disciples had seen Jesus for a long time, but then they saw Him like never before, and their lives were changed.

The disciples had heard Jesus for a long time, but as they began to really listen to Him and obey, their lives were changed even more.

It is not just hearing the Word of God that makes a difference in your life, it’s listening to it in a way that makes a change in how you live.  It’s not just learning about Jesus that transforms your heart, it’s listening to His call to a new life, and responding in faith.

May you truly listen to Jesus today, and in doing that, may you experience the life-changing results that can only come from Him.
