My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.
He replied, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.”
Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
1 John 5:14
Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.
Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers,
and blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord.
I love the Lord, for he heard my voice;
he heard my cry for mercy.
Because he turned his ear to me,
I will call on him as long as I live.
Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.
Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
