Others have no physical hearing defect, but “their ears are dull of hearing…lest at any time they should…hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted” (Matthew 13:15). They, too, “celebrate” a holiday by partying, hardly realizing what the occasion is, ears dulled, minds fogged.
Still others would hear, but “how shall they hear without a preacher?” And “how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard?” (See Romans 10:14.)
You who are concerned and support this [radio] program are causing many dull ears to hear the gospel of the grace of God which Christ brought to us through His birth, His death, and His resurrection. You are enabling the “preacher” to speak so that others can hear the Word of God taught and can believe.
We have heard the joyful sound that Jesus saves. “This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” (1 Timothy 1:15). He was born a Savior! “If any man have ears to hear, let him hear” (Mark 4:23).—J. Vernon McGee, written December 1984
