Do I know Him as I ought?

I was reading this from Spurgeon’s Morning and Evening.  This was is on the evening of July 15th.

"He appeared first to Mary Magdalene."
--Mark 16:9

Jesus "appeared first to Mary Magdalene," probably not only on account of her great love and persevering seeking, but because, as the context intimates, she had been a special trophy of Christ's delivering powerBut notice how Christ revealed Himself to this sorrowing one--by a word, "Mary." It needed but one word in His voice, and at once she knew Him, and her heart owned allegiance by another word, her heart was too full to say more. That one word would naturally be the most fitting for the occasion. It implies obedience. She said, "Master."

As I was reading, the verse below came to mind:

John 10:27  My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

As soon as Mary Magdalene heard her name spoken by the Savior, she knew Him.  Do I know Him as I ought?  Do I hear Him say my name? Or am I too occupied with other things that I have tuned Him out of my plans?   Am I willing in turn to say “Master” in full obedience to Him?
