Flee from…to…


Will you be challenged?

If John the Baptist came along and warned you toflee from the wrath to come’ – would you be challenged – first to listen and then to take on board what he said? (Matthew 3/7).

And on being convinced of the truth he proclaimed would you then set yourself to find a way to see it’s outworking in your life?

Or would you respond with: ‘Well Johnny boy – you have your truth and I have mine?”

There can be an acceptance of everybody’s ‘truth’, so as not to offend, or become unpopular, or out of a sense of not wanting to seem intolerant of other people’s views or religion.

I have already written in a previous blog about the fact that there is no ‘your truth’ and ‘my truth’ – it is a contradiction. There is only the truth.

Perhaps Pilate had ‘his truth’.

Pilate’s question, put to the Christ was: “What is truth?” (John 18/38)

There – standing before him, was the only Living and True… – and he couldn’t see it. (I Thessalonians 1/9).

What about you and I? Could that be our problem, – we can’t see it?

The Gospel has a simple foundational truth, upon which everything else is built:

I Corinthians 3/11

For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

Stop and think this over:

(I use the word if as a reluctant concession on my part) – If Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God – your life and mine can NEVER be the same – the truth of this fact – demands that we take action of a revolutionary life changing nature.

Again put simply – believe it in your heart and confess it with your mouth, embracing Him totally through prayer – and the giving of yourself wholly to Him and everything He says.

For this to be a reality and the reality is to benefit our lives, there must be a trade-in.

As-much-as-is-in-you-now – trade yourself in. And receive the reward of Jesus Christ coming to you in the way He said He would, and says He will.

He then lives His life through us by processing us within, changing us from stage of growth to stage of greater growth.

Our inner man is guaranteed eternal life. Our inner man is able to receive more and more revelation of His Life within, as day follows day.

John 14/

25 “These things I have spoken to you while being present with you. 26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.
