More Fearful Following Less Folly, 07OCT – #1271

Standard

When I became Christian, like Abraham:

I started thinking about my portable tent, not a permanent place. 

I started thinking about my altar building and not my riches gathering. 

I started thinking about my Worship not my Wallowing. 

I started thinking about my sacrifices, not my success.

I started thinking about God’s Gate, not my Goals.


When I Became Christian, like Moses:

I found that talking to God was good but listening to God was better.

I found the pillar of fire would watch me in the dark and the cloud of coverage would embrace me in the day. 

I found out that I WAS lost, even though I didn’t know it. 

I found out that I became Saved only after I found out that I was lost.

I found out that I am Saved into a place I thought I was guaranteed but didn’t know it was not my right to be there.


When I Became Christian, like Jacob:

I found that I wrestled with God, a lot, and still do.

I found the pit of my Darkness was no match for the Light of my Lord.

I found the ladder of peeking at Heaven was always within my reach.

I started saying: “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I was not aware of it.”


When I became Christian, like Jarius’s daughter:

I found the Source of my Joy. 

I tapped into the prayers of generations prayed for me. 

I realized where I was sleeping and dead in my faith.

I realized Jesus WAS always knocking.

I realized that Jesus woke me, healed me, met me where I was.

I realized His gentle Hand. 

I found the Born Again nature of my soul. 


When I became Christian, like the Sinner I am:

I realized Heaven comes from a Savior’s Sacrifice and not my “scraping by”.

I realized not everyone knows this, but for some reason I was chosen to understand. 

I realized that Jesus was, is, and will be Lord God Almighty, not just a scapegoat of the day.

I realized that Jesus was, is, and will be the Promise realized.

I realized Jesus as the Lord and not just the Son sent temporarily here. 

I realized He Was, Is, and Always has been here and there.


When I become more Christian, like the Christian I want to be:

I realize that I can be really deceived by my own blindness. 

I realize the realness of the devil and the rampage of his influence, everyday. 

I realize that Jesus doesn’t give up even if the devil doesn’t go down without a fight. 

I realized that I need the shield of the Almighty and the gentleness of the Lamb.

I realized that Jesus chose this path and walks it still every day.

…and so should I.


And so should I.
