Jesus is changing me. How about you?

Dear World

Dear World:

I see that you are becoming upset at the current state of your ways.  You witness happenings around you that you consider negative toward your desires.  One might even say that you are pondering your current plight with perplexity.  You want your way with all things as you have always wanted them.  And you have been duped by the witness of your ancestors.  They have handed down to you a testimony of greed, corruption, idolatry, immorality, drunkenness, lies, murder, and a seeking after every form of pleasure.  I know you’re worried about being able to continue this legacy.  And I know that in your heart you have a deep desire to pass this “freedom” down to your great grand children.

I have bad news for you.  What you are witnessing is real.  Slowly, your ways (as itemized above) are stripping your future from your hands.  You will lose everything you have sought to gain and keep.  And you will shed great tears as your desires are taken from you.  Yet, not all is lost.

I have good news for you.  Jesus stands ready to receive your repentant and contrite heart as you lose your precious sin.  He offers you eternally good things to replace the toys you have invented for yourself.  You will lose all those toys.  But what He offers you will never lose, if you take Him up on His offer.

You are the creation of God.  He has given you a body and soul.  He provided a place for you to live that you might seek Him and find Him and return worship to His Holy Name.  But you chose to desire the work of your own hand.  The door is closing on you now.  I know you can hear the squeek of massive hinges as the Wind of God slowly closes your world around you.  Turn and be healed.   Continue to rebel and die.

By His Grace.

  2. Thanks sis.

    If I meet a Christian who says they have nothing to say or write about the situations the world is in today, I’d question their use of the label. He speaks to all His Children of truth. His “words” are often mental pictures. Sometimes they are actual words (but rarely, for it is by faith we are saved. And, besides, what is called Scripture is enough.) If I show a cell phone to 38 people who speak different languages, I’d expect they’d do a pretty good job of telling their witness in their own language.

    By His Grace.

  3. What a gracious warning to the world, and the church. We are not fools to give up what we cannot keep to receive that which we cannot lose.

    I enjoy your no-holds bared gentleness.

    Grace and peace.
