In a stirring video, the HUFFINGTON POST GOOD NEWS team has created a moving montage of “What it looks like when people truly hear for the first time.” In the video we jump from clip to clip of elated patients—the very young, older and in between—who have experienced the blessing of cochlear implants and are having their devices turned on for the first time. The looks on their faces, as they actually hear the voices of loved ones (even their own voices) range from everything from surprise, shock, elation, awe, and more!
In each case, you see how deeply emotional and liberating the experience can be.
That look of joy and utter amazement, as senses which they thought were dead to them were now coming to life, is a physical glimpse into the expression of the soul the moment it hears--truly hears—for the first time, the words of the Good News of the Gospel message once it is implanted deep within. They give a face to soul of a man whose dead heart, for the first time, experiences the engrafted Word of God and receives new life in Christ.
“…Humbly accept the word God has planted in your hearts, for it has the power to save your souls” (James 1:21b, NLT).
Wouldn't you want to see people’s souls look like those faces? Share the Word! There are still so many who long to hear it!
“But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?” (Romans 10:14, NLT).
