He that hath ears to hear, let him hear

"The first step to finding faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is to let His word- spoken by the mouth of His servants, the prophets- touch your heart. But it is not enough merely to let those words wash over you, as if they alone could transform you. We must do our part. Or as the Savior Himself said, "He that hath ears to hear, let him hear." (Matt. 11:15) In other words, hearing requires an active effort. "Faith without works is dead." (James 2:26) It means taking seriously what is taught, considering it carefully, studying it out in our minds. As the prophet Enos learned, it means letting others' testimonies of the gospel" (sink) deep into (our) heart(s). (Enos 1:3)"
