Pastor Wagner often uses social media to reach out to congregants and others with thought-provoking posts. On one of his blogs, Chariti Theou, he discussed the importance of listening to God’s voice to find personal guidance. In this context, he referenced John 10:27, where Jesus said, “My sheep know my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.”
Saying that God is constantly speaking to human beings, the pastor went on to enumerate the many sources through which we may discern the heavenly voice: through our loved ones, a pastor’s teachings, the glories of the natural world, and our indwelling sense of the Holy Spirit. He emphasized that we must identify the voice of God amidst the noise of everyday life, asking ourselves if what we hear aligns with the principles of the New Covenant and with Jesus’ sacrifice on the Cross.
