A Stranger's Voice
by Randy Chambers, 2014-05-26
John 10:5, NIV: But they will never follow a stranger; in fact,
they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger's voice.
It is sometimes in the quiet that we hear a whisper of a voice. And not the one we want to
always hear. But somewhere in the quiet, a thought comes into mindand with it, the
words of worldly wisdom. The message varies, but not the messenger. He is adorned in
sheeps clothing, and has but one goal: to deceive, and to kill and destroy. He
wields his venomous tonguea poisonous sword. Sometimes, the very words your flesh
desires to hear. Go ahead, no one is looking. Who will know? You deserve it.
Whats so wrong with it anyway? The choice is now before you. Do you bite? Do
you listen to the voice that lies and calls itself your own reasoning? Or do you seek out
the Word of God for your direction?
