Verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.
Jesus not only will raise the spiritually dead at his command at the end of time, but as he walked the earth and even still today, his voice goes out and powerfully raises the spiritually dead to everlasting life. Through the Spirit he sent, his voice is heard. Not only those who hear the Gospel physically but also with “spiritual ears” will be saved.
O Lord Jesus, we have passed from death to life (John 5:24) by hearing Your Word. And we know You have life in Yourself to give to men (John 5:26). Open our minds and hearts to understand Your truths, truths that very often the natural mind wants to reject. You have given us life. Give us that life, we pray, yet more abundantly. Amen.⚜️🙏⚜️
