Isaiah 53:7 …CHRIST WENT BEFORE HIS ENEMIES WITHOUT SAYING A MUMBLING WORD…Here is something that often one of the most misunderstood verse in the bible. When you have the “wisdom of God”… You don’t have to respond to all the ignorant rants that people do. You don’t raise up your sleeves to show your muscles. Satan isn’t afraid of the counterfeits. Even he understands the “true authority” when it is spoken.
I find it amazing when it’s time to make the difference and be the agent of change… In the heat of battle and the stand is the real you shows up! It might be frightening if you lack structure and some self-control. It’s always easier to put our foot in your mouth, it’s getting the foot of your mouth that will hurt the most. Being high on emotions will leave you open for dire consequences!
There will be many people who don’t understand what I am saying, and what I stand for…but I don’t usurping authority and disrespect isn’t the avenue I will travel. Here lately the ridicule of being a Christian is looking at most heathens that honestly believe that Christ is in their negative behavior. I stand for Christ…
And I see we need that basic Sunday School lesson… Learning to hold your peace… not spit venom for venom… In this manner we can’t tell which one is the real fool!
I am woman who is definitely quite in nature but will speak up when it’s necessary. Other that, I have to refrain from getting in situations with people who will bring embarrassment to the church but not the real Body of Christ. They understand the respect for order!
God has never been the orchestration of confusion. We are to be the “peacemakers” and not a rebel rouser. There is a way that might “seem” right to you but if you are a Christian… your stance should always be different regardless of your status, title, and or positions within any job or organization. For example…If you are a Christian why are you the troublemaker, late for work, or the one has to have the last word.
There is no perfection in ANY human being without the leading of the HOLY SPIRIT. The problem is many really don’t have the HOLY SPIRIT. When you are full of Christ you are less likely to be making immature mistakes. What can you hold down when it’s been led by ill behavior. If you are really a Christian. No one in the world, should see disrespect and no regard for the law.
Yet, we should be the example. Although some seem to “skip” those small foxes that hems us up against the trenches instead… Holding our peace and allowing God to fight the battles.
However, we see so many people claim that they are Christians but the behavior is simply out of control and off the meter. If I am really to set an example even when I am doing “Social Justice” and there are some hateful people in the world and in the CHURCH… I must first RESPECT THE ORDINANCES OF CHRIST… act like I have some common sense… and reinforce a moral conscience.
Too many times some make some foolish decisions out of anger. Like venting on Face Book and other social media outlets. Unfortunately, many would like to believe it’s okay … to say one thing but in the heat of battle or a struggle say and do things we can’t recant.
Sadly, THE ADULTS need more of refresher course on respect as well as the children. It’s never good when we know better and do what we want and when we want it. You are planting seeds of rebellion…and what is sheer heartbreak we are living in perilous times and many of us lack respect and understand boundaries. People are calling what’s right and wrong and what’s wrong right… Say what?
There will be many times we have in our lives that we may to stand for what is right but we must also understand that if you are a Christian… there is a way your represent that change…and it’s not going against authority or integrity. As many claim to be followers of Christ.
We have to remind our people that Christ was a sheep that symbolize the power of knowing where the real authority lies! He didn’t have to answer to anyone because he knew who he was and who he belong to. When you are really sold out to what you believe Christ had another set of rules that unfortunately doesn’t seem to be exemplified in the church or the so-called Christian masses!
Today … the even the devil calls himself a Christian…Think about that?
