Let Him Hear

“Every time I stand in the pulpit of St. Andrew’s to read Scripture on a Sunday morning, I conclude the reading with the same words: ‘He who has ears to hear, let him hear.’ That’s not an empty ritual. I take very seriously the truth that the Word of God that we read and proclaim will fall on deaf ears unless God Himself attends that Word by the Holy Spirit and opens the ears of those who hear it. There is no greater gift we could ever receive from God than to have our ears opened, to have the scales taken from our eyes, to have our stony hearts softened so that they become beating, pulsating, responding hearts of love as we hear the Word of God.”

– R.C. Sproul, from John (St. Andrew’s Expositional Commentary)
