It is possible to listen to God’s Word without benefitting from it. Sometimes, the reason is that we have not carefully considered the questions and demands that Scripture asks of our lives. Alistair Begg teaches us that God’s Word is an appointed means by which a person comes to faith and also a means by which the Christian grows in grace.
21And he said to them, “Is a lamp brought in to be put under a basket, or under a bed, and not on a stand? 22For nothing is hidden except to be made manifest; nor is anything secret except to come to light. 23If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear.” 24And he said to them, “Pay attention to what you hear: with the measure you use, it will be measured to you, and still more will be added to you. 25For to the one who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away.”
