What does it mean to "listen" to the apostles and prophets in Scripture? It means unity with the Godhead. It means love for Jesus. It means a showing of respect. It means devotion, heart, intelligence, servanthood, and common sense. Common sense teaches people that heat will burn, cold will freeze, and not doing your homework will cause you to fail.
All Jesus is asking you to do is your homework.
