Life in Neutral

One of the great spiritual deceptions is that there is a neutral position or state in which the disciple of Christ can idle. When back-sliding Israel became idolatrous, they swung from worshiping God to bowing to idols. Many in the Church today, think this example no longer applies; apostates do not erect a statue to Baal or Molech, yet think that ‘time away from the Lord’ is not an evil; however, Jesus’ teaching is crystal and warns that a person cannot serve two masters:

‘Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money…’ (Matthew 6:24)

Why?

Psalms 77:19 “Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known.”
One of the first questions a young child learns to ask is “Why?” They ask it repeatedly and relentlessly, eager to learn about the world around them. Even as adults, it is the question we all want to know. About everything. Always. Why did this happen? Why did you say that? Why am I being taxed like this? And on and on and on until we die. But even then, we ask it – why am I dying now? And we reserve special questions for when we’re actually dead. “When I get to see God, I’m going to ask him why….”

Psalm 139:23-24, says, “Search me O God, and know my heart; try me and know my anxious thoughts; and see if there be any hurtful way in me, and lead me in the everlasting way.” Every follower of Jesus must be open and actively seeking to be searched by God so that we don’t become numb to the pending judgment every one of us will face. This Psalm provides three essential areas that we must give God access to if we want to live under His leadership.

The Tongue-Tied Evangelist

From the earthly and temporal perspective then, the cross is an offense as Billy Graham once remarked; hence, for every rational man or woman only God can bring about the repentance that reverses this view. There is no humanly power, whether that of oratory, argument or persuasion, let alone intimidation or threat that can bring people to faith. It is God that reveals the truth of the Gospel through his Spirit; therefore, the Gospel is not only sufficient, it is the only message the evangelist should bring lest arguments or confusion ensues.

Wisdom Books Part 5 of 5

Here concludes our brief overview of the wisdom literature. It is only fitting that we end with a question. For if these books, which are meant to make us wise teach anything, then surely it is that life and God are ultimately a mystery. And mystery is necessary for spiritual health.
