Issue 512 – Verse of the Week

October 14th – October 20th, 2021


Whoever is of God hears the words of God. John 8:47

Be Quick to Hear

In September, Academy Award-winning actor Denzel Washington told a men’s conference in Orlando what God has been telling him to do and it doesn’t have anything to do with the entertainment industry. “ ’Feed my sheep.’ That’s what God wants me to do,” he said. The actor said he hears God telling him what to do every time he prays. He admitted that his response to this command of the Lord was to question what He meant. But he continued, “What I found out in the last couple of years is there are all kinds of sheep. So that’s why I talk to experienced shepherds to help guide me.” He came to understand that he is to share what he knows, inspire those he can, seek advice, and, most of all, “Stay on your knees. Listen to God.” You may not be called to the same type of life as Denzel Washington, but God has a job for you to do… are you listening?
