to listen, to harken
of one who on the knock at the door comes to listen who it is, (the duty of a porter)
to harken to a command
to obey, be obedient to, submit to

Fast forward one week from Ash Wednesday and I find my self content to be listening and waiting in a posture of willingness. I'm grateful for the storehouse of faith I have which makes it easy to trust God in spite of the obvious practical difficulties I face in giving up my easy routine. I know I can't wait much longer, for even the waiting can be disobedience. Hupakouo is a verb. It is a verb which refers to absolute and direct obedience.

How remarkable that I should turn over and over a simple moment of obedience, even as I am considering Christ's obedience during this season of repentance and reflection.

For today Lord, I want to be quiet and to hear.
