It is not possible to live in Christ without testifying. If we speak that testimony with words, then good. But everything we are reflects who we have been willing to become before Him. It can’t be hidden, not before every creature in heaven, nor every human on earth.
Has this come home to roost in our tree of understanding? Have we come to place this truth in front of everything we think or do? How would our life change if we forced ourselves to remember this, as if a “First” habit?
Give a young man a Ferrari for his birthday. There will come a place where he will certainly test its ability. Isn’t that the nature of humanity? And isn’t that why we consider such parents to be foolish?
We are disciples of the Most High God in His Holy Son. By the power of his endless Holy Spirit we serve Him. Excuse me for stating the obvious, but how does a Ferrari compare? Tell me, if you can, why do we suppress our natural tendency to “Give it all its got” when it comes to the promises of God?
Man is not stripped of curiosity when he becomes a Christian, in fact it is enhanced. Despite the shocking ability of a Ferrari, it has a limit. It requires a road, gasoline, and a human to drive it.
But what God offers us comes from his Eternal Sovereignty. Why wouldn’t it be advisable to take some time and consider this? What does God offer that we are not willing to test? Why do Christians lay down their curiosity before they enter His Holy Throne?
Curiosity is not of the flesh. It is a gift from God to our soul, that we may search out his marvelous willingness. The flesh is only curious about the things it can get away with. But our soul should be curious about the things we can receive.
If what you want are the Ferraris of this world, then yes, you are living in the flesh. But if what you desire are the eternal things of God, then apply your curiosity to attain.
He has sealed his willingness to give, with the promise of the Holy Blood of His Holy Son. How much more proof do we need, that he is willing to give us endlessly more than we can even imagine?
Let your soul enter. Strap yourself in with the restraints of faith. Place your frail foot on the Holy ground. Prepare your heart for a mind shocking ride. Grip His promises with steel hands, and press your foot down hard. Why should we not try to find out how far God is willing to take us?
