I guess you could say that I have kind of a pondering spirit. I like to wonder about and process things sometimes that shouldn’t require as much thought as I am giving them. For instance, why do we figuratively “draw a line in the sand” when we are daring someone to cross a certain point before something is done? I am pretty certain that if you drew a line in the sand at the beach last year, it is long gone by now.
Why are we so wishy-washy? (Another thing to ponder…where did that term come into being?) Why is it so difficult to find consistency? Has faith become commercial like almost everything else in our culture—easily bought and sold?
If my husband and I were to change the rules of our household on a daily basis, what kind of a foundation would we be giving our children? If the line moves so often, or becomes altogether erased, they may grow up wondering if any absolute truth exists.
Absolute Truth does in fact exist, and His Name is Jesus. The Word does not change; He is the same yesterday, today and forever. He didn’t say that “on quick sand I will build My church.” There is actual, unchangeable, infallible Truth. We are able to live daily on a foundational rock that cannot be eroded. What we believed when we received Him as Savior has not changed! And we cannot outgrow it!
A line has in fact in been drawn, as we cannot live on both sides of the fence. We cannot claim the blessings of God without walking in obedience to Him. Choose you this day—whom are you going to serve? We are made in such a way that we will worship something or someone. There has been a line drawn with the Blood of Jesus—as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
Who is on the Lord’s side? Prove it.
Scripture to read:
Father, You gave us a choice, so I choose You. I choose to love You and serve You. I cannot live without You, so do not let me try. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
