Truth steps out onto to the stage, to give his monologue. His supporters, boosters, and Peters wait patiently for their parts, yet their eyes are fixed on the audience. They await a response to Truth's performance. Truth continues in flawless eloquence, as interested eyes turn to angry. Truth's support misses all their cues as they focus on the furled brows, and malicious murmurs beginning to ripple through the pond of people, as Truth continues tossing mirror like pebbles.
The crowd becomes hostile, as Truth never seems to end. Truth's co-stars have now exited the building, for fear of the crowd. Truth is left, as he has been in all his existence, ALONE!
How many of you have ever been THAT one? How many of you have been THE person willing to stand for truth, no matter what the crowd or world thinks? At work, at home, in the neighborhood, at church, we are or have been one of the representations illustrated above. Are you the Truth? Are you the sell-out friends of the Truth? Are you the crowd that hates and despises the Truth?
Take time to TRULY think about where you stand? In Truth, it's either all out, or all in. Lukewarm is like living in a dumpster, wondering why everyone you invite over turns their noses up and refuses to stay for more than a few seconds at a time.
God is Truth. By and in Him is the best place to stand. To stand anywhere else is to choose to be the grass, rather than the lawn mower.
A Truth of which we all should have knowledge:
"You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world." - 1John 4:4 -
Truth does not have very many dedicated friends in this day and age, but that, in no way, diminishes ANY of His power, importance, or significance. We tend to have closet relationships with Truth, Who is never reluctant to take the stage alone.......
HAPPY WEDNESDAY Y'ALL!! I LOVE YOU ALL, EACH AND EVERY ONE!!!
P.S. "Only fear the Lord, and serve Him in Truth with all your heart; for consider what great things He has done for you." - 1Samuel 12:24 -
