“Escuchar Roberto”, “Escuchar Antonio”, “Escuchar Carlos” – two-way radios in scrap-yards in Spain crackle with the sound of this call as the workers communicate with each other from every corner of the yard. Believe me I have spent many hours in scrap-yards around the area listening to this while waiting for one of the above individuals to locate the parts I need and removing them from the scrap vehicle.
‘Escuchar’ in Spanish means ‘listen’ by the way.
As we communicate with each other we often say “listen” because we are trying to share something which needs the other person’s attention. It should come as no surprise that God is trying to communicate with us. He also says “escuchar” or “listen”. He also wants us to act on what we hear.
The Bible is known as God’s Word as through it He speaks to us. He says “escuchar”. He tells us that He created us and the world we live in.
“Escuchar” – He tells us of His purity and our need of a Saviour.
“Escuchar” – He tells us about His Son Jesus who came down to live among us and die in our place.
“Escuchar” – He tells us that to be re-united with Him we need to ask Jesus to be our Saviour and be in our lives.
“Escuchar” – All creation, our own conscience, our need for peace and a purpose for life tells us that God is speaking to us.
He says “escuchar”, but are we listening and ready to act?
“Do not merely listen to the word and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word, but does not do what it says, is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like”. James 1 v 22, 23.
