Passive and Active Hearing: Bible Study

John 9:27 He answered them, I have toldyou already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear [it] again? will ye also be his disciples?

We must have come across people who have detective sense, they observe every minute detail of what is shown to them, what is told to them and what is happening around them. Are these people having some special senses? No. They are trained or train themselves to focus and actively observe, hear, smell or use their 5 human senses.

We find people who think by hearing preachings or teachings on the Word of God their faith will increase, are in for a disappointment. Romans 10:17 is wrongly translated as ‘faith comes by hearing and hearing’. One needs to get into the Greek grammar to truly understand the scripture.

I mentioned this before. The first verb ‘hearing’ is in passive tense and the second verb ‘hearing’ is in active tense. If we were to accurately translate in English the second word would be translated as ‘listening’ instead of hearing.

The reason we do not know about the Kingdom of God more and more is because we truly do not desire from our hearts. Many a times our words do not match the depth of our heart’s desires.

We need to become crazy and passionate for the Kingdom of God to truly understand it and gain it. Jesus said this in a parable of a man who sells all to gain a piece of land, just to get the treasure he knows is hidden in that land.

To get all of God, we need to give all of ourselves. To be disciples too (Christians) we need to empty all of ourselves to put on the Nature of Christ (Discipleship is about putting on His Nature). We are fools to think we can be ourselves inside and have a nature of Christ on the top. It is either Him in us, or us in us.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord You are Almighty God. You Lord gave your most loved for us and expect the same from us. Lord we pray we break all bonds that hold is back from You. We pray we learn to passionately and madly seek your Kingdom to be worthy of it…

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptrures]

Romans 10:17 So then faith [cometh] by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Matthew 13:44 The kingdom of heaven is like unto a treasure hidden in the field; which a man found, and hid; and in his joy he goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.

Matthew 19:21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wouldest be perfect, go, sell that which thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.

Matthew 6:21 for where thy treasure is, there will thy heart be also.

Proverbs 2:2 So as to incline thine ear unto wisdom, And apply thy heart to understanding;

John 11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth on me, though he die, yet shall he live;

Matthew 10:39 He that findeth his life shall lose it; and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
