I received some encouraging feedback from the post, “How do you listen”. Writing is so much easier when people profit from you words. After writing that article I received a copy of Dr. Joel Beeke’s book, “The Family at Church”. Dr. Beeke writes about listening to sermons. He asks Christians to be “active listeners” to the preached word. He also brings out the point that we should prepare our hearts beforehand to receive the Word; as well as discuss the preached word after the sermon. Even though we come from some differing theological convictions, it is good to be in agreement with Dr. Beeke on this subject. I heartily recommend this book.
