“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches”
He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches
The “ear” is a system of perception and reception of truth. As His custom, Jesus ends this letter with a challenge to positive volition. The exhortation follows rather than precedes this challenge to hear as in the previous epistles.
Jesus calls for unconditional surrender by challenging our volition to follow His will.
We need to keep our spiritual ears in tune to walking with the Lord. Our spiritual senses should alert us to eroding moral standards around us.
People who surrender to the Lord do not live out their own will, but the will of the King. They live out anything that conforms to the will of the King of Glory. Those who have “ears to hear” repent of anything that violates His will. They devote their life completely to the Lord when they turn it completely over to the Lord for His use (Romans 12:1,2).
