37 Therefore Pilate said to Him, “So You are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say correctly that I am a king. For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.”
John 18:37 NASB
Jesus shared with Pilate a very important understanding of spiritual things. Those who truly care about the “truth” will hear Jesus’ voice. Hearing the truth causes a response. That is why Jesus said earlier in John, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.”
You’ll know if you are His if you are listening to His voice, through the Word of God, and you are obeying Him. There is no other work around. There is no other route to the Father.
It is so important, especially in this day and age where there is a lack of Bible understanding, to know Jesus through what He says in His Word.
The Bible is God’s Word to us. It’s like if He was sitting down right in front of us and speaking. He reveals Himself to us and helps us to know how we are supposed to live in this world.
Lord, help us to know and understand Your Word. Reveal Scripture knowledge through the leading and guiding of the Holy Spirit. Give us a love, a hunger for Your Word that can’t be quenched in any other way.
