The Whisper of His Voice

In John 20 we see that Mary didn’t recognize when Jesus was standing with her. This made me think, how often do I forget, not feel, or not care that Jesus is with me?
Once he spoke she knew who he was. When he speaks in my life do I listen?
As disciples, we can get too comfortable with the presence of Jesus and disregard the work of God in our lives. I have been so challenge to consider how and why I don’t always recognize God in my life…
Maybe we haven’t listened in so long it’s hard to hear. Maybe we are so far from the Lord that we don’t care. Maybe we just like our sin so much that we don’t care.
No matter the reason, may we be like Mary and respond, “Oh teacher!” when we hear his voice.
