There was a day when men would seek out those who “knew”. At their feet they would listen intently. Even if they could not believe, they believed in that “something More”.
Is that day like today? Everyone is forced to say no.
The worldly mind praises the accomplishments of Man. The religious man praises the accomplishments of god-ward thoughts and traditions. The sinner praises his bold rebellion. But who seeks the fullness of God within His Holy Christ?
Many have come. Many have returned to the world. Who remains? Who seeks to become the intent of God? Who sits at the feet of those who know? Who remains in belief and listens intently?
What have we learned, in regard to this world? Yet what have we desired to learn of the things of Heaven?
God knows those who are His. His eye is intently set on their souls. God is not like limited man. God sees with penetrating understanding; what man can conceal from man cannot be concealed from God. You may fool me for a while, but the Spirit of God quickly points to the truth we can expect from those who belong to Him.
7 “Don’t be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant. 8 Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit.” (Galatians 6, the living translation) There will be a noticeable DIFFERENCE.
Isn’t the door of understanding from the Living God’s Christ wide open? Who is willing to enter? Who will bend their will toward all that is Holy? Those who do so will be sent.
Isn’t the world in dire need of truth? Who will “go”, that they may be sent?
