Once a word is said it is out there and there is nothing you can do to bring it back. It sets your whole life on fire. How would the relationships around you be different if you just didn’t say it? If you didn’t throw it? If you didn’t delay it?
The truth to which Jesus refers is more than the factual correctness that dominates so much of western Christianity. We can quote verses about evangelism, prayer, or compassion, yet we rarely seek to extend compassion prayerfully bringing the gospel to those living in darkness. The freedom that Jesus offers is not a political system; it is a release from the chains that enslave one's soul.
For those that are dry, run down, worn out, those who have been there - done that, new possibilities are for you. God is doing a new thing this morning. Can you see it?
Do you long to be refreshed? To find purpose and satisfaction in life? Walk it out.
The Script has been flipped. New possibilities are yours. Walk it out.
What a parable that Jesus crafted so we could see who we are and what we are supposed to do. In this culture war, we may never change a person’s mind and they may never accept Christ and His plan for their life and just like the inns of old the church doesn’t have a stellar reputation. Here at A Fresh Wind, we will hold onto our mission. We will be what He has made us to be.
You are chosen as a priest--be a good one. Fight against that duplicity we all fight against. Give your loyalty to God so you will be prepared to be His ambassador. Remember all God’s power and authority back you up as He makes His appeal to those around you through you. Embrace it and let God surprise you with what He can do through you!
