The sheep that are My own hear and are listening to My voice; and I know them, and they follow Me.
Many people try to feel spiritual by obeying religious laws. But
they never get around to feeling good, because there is always one more law to follow. That is why God does not define our
righteousness by our works, but by our faith in Jesus. We feel
inner peace when we obey the voice of the Holy Spirit.
God may tell you that it is more important to give away your
favorite personal possession, than to try to please Him by reading the Bible through in a year. He may say that it is more important to just remain silent, if He tells you to, than to
volunteer for every activity at church. His ways are not our ways (See Isaiah 55:8–9), so learn to listen for His direction each day.
