God in My House Vision Blog

There is so much more to life than our five senses tell us. An unseen world that exists with this physical one . . .   And where is God in all of this?
 
He wants to be Lord in our homes, but more importantly, desiring us to be His living temples, that we may eat fully from His table, thriving not just surviving.
 
Catch His Vision! He is God of the Impossible!

 

The Fence

Hot or Cold, not Lukewarm, Jesus said. In other words, don't be sitting on the fence. In all seriousness, I feel and see a knocking off the fence is happening or imminent. (Rev. 3:15,16)

Unless you're a baby, pretty much no liquid tastes good lukewarm. How many of us are lukewarm as followers of Christ?

C.S. Lewis' Screwtape Letters says it well: "Indeed the safest road to Hell is the gradual one - the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts ..."

And then, here's Christ saying hate your husband, wife, father, mother, brother, sister ... for His sake. Hate the world. Not hating in our way of thinking, because even our enemy He commanded us to love and to do good to those who hate us or abuse us ... But choose Him first - always. Love Him first - above all (Luke 14:26, Mat.10:37).
 
Love Him most. Not the world or its values. Not ourselves and desires. Certainly not the enemy of our souls, the devil.
 
He's knocking people off the fence!
Choose!
Who will you serve?

Moses, chosen by God to lead the ancient Israelites out of slavery, stood for the Lord and others stood with him. The earth opened up and swallowed those who stood against them - on the other side of the fence (Num. 16). Joshua, Moses' assistant, said, "But as for me and my household we will serve the Lord." (Josh. 24:15)

And why should the Lord Jesus be first? Because He's Creator, Almighty, God! He's Love, Light, Life! It's due Him - the I AM! He proved His love for us in the greatest way - dying for us. And - He actually wants to share eternity - blissful eternity - with us.
 
What are we doing in His Name today? Is it for ourselves so others will see or we get "brownie points?" Or for Him for His glory and according to His will? Does the stuff we fight for have everlasting value? Because only those things will count when Christ either says, "Well done, good and faithful servant!" - or "I never knew you." (Mat. 25:21, Mat. 7:21-23)

Let's get off the fence, walking that unseen path, landing on the Lord's side. Standing firm in our loyalty to the King of kings and Lord of lords.

Lord's Blessings,

Jennies
