Pr. 20:12: “The hearing ear and the seeing eye, the Lord has made them both.”
This Proverb reminds us that the Lord made every part of us, and each part is to be used for His service. He made ears to hear the gospel. He made eyes to see His glory in creation, and to see those around us who are hurting and need our help.
There are ears that still need to hear the Word of God. There are ears that need to know they have a Savior who cares so much for them that He would willingly lay down His life for their own. There are ears that need to know they are worthy of such a Savior.
Romans 10:14 asks, “How shall they hear without a preacher?” We are the preachers. We are the voices those ears need to hear. The Lord made those ears to hear of Him. It’s up to us to make sure the message reaches them.
We don’t need a pulpit in order to preach. We preach when we pray for someone who has a need. We preach when we give our time, in the name of Jesus, for someone who feels they’re unworthy of it. We preach when we share a scripture to encourage the one who is being oppressed by the enemy. We preach when we tell someone about Jesus. We preach when we give praise to God for the blessings in our lives. We preach when we sing songs about the Lord to our children. We preach when we tell the truth, no matter the consequences. We preach when we turn the other cheek, or when we avert our eyes from temptation.
Our lives preach to the seeing eyes and the hearing ears that the Lord made. When everything about our lives point to Jesus, His gospel is being shared.
How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, who bring glad tidings of good things! Ro. 10:15
Whether it’s a pair of sweat pants, a suit, or a uniform, let’s get our preaching clothes on today, get our beautiful feet moving, and speak up. Those eyes and ears are waiting.
Warming up my voice,
