How to See Our Jesus and Hear His Voice

Sermon 9 - Aslan

Perhaps you’ve heard it asked before: If you feel far from God, who do you think moved?

Repentance can sound awful to our modern ears. Images of self-righteous “preachers” wielding BIbles as weapons, heaping on guilt and condemnation.

However, this couldn’t be farther from the truth about repentance. Many times, we need to clear out the sin, mess, and clutter that have blinded our eyes from seeing Jesus and have plugged our ears from hearing His voice. If we want a clear view of His beautiful face, we need to be real about the sin in our lives that so easily clouds our vision.

But what freedom we find when our eyes are finally opened and our ears can finally hear!

As the words to the well-known hymn sing:

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now am found; was blind, but now I see
