Spiritual deafness is a serious condition. How can we do God’s will if we don’t hear or understand what He wants from us? It is essential to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit and read the Bible with an open heart for He said, “My sheep listen to my voice” (Jn 10:27). Unrepentant hearts stubbornly refuse to respond rightly to the Holy Spirit’s conviction.
