Knock Knock!

Posted: July 11, 2012 in Am i There Yet?

George Barna noted researcher reports… That i as a believer have become bored and disillusioned! He goes on to say that the majority of Americans believe that there is no absolute moral truth! He then says that two out of three Christian and non-Christian adults argue that truth is relevant to the individual and to circumstances.

The new doctrine of the church and us as a people is relevance. Results in a new level of tolerance and comfort with sin. Further it is based on circumstance or person even when it blatantly contradicts the clear teaching of the word.

The lack of intimate relationships has produced a lack of intimate relationship with Jesus by believers. Try and see how it feels. Let’s see if we’re a fit? The result is a lack of identity, a lack of spiritual authority and a lack of awareness of my purpose.

i would like to disregard all that if only to say that the information given does not include me. But where i am today keeps me from declaring that. This is what the word says regarding all that.

2 Corinthians 2:14,15 But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of him. For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing.

That’s what i’d like to say about me, “for i am God the aroma of Christ” but the following is probably more true, sleepyhead, sleepyhead, sleepyhead.

Psalm 24:7 Message: Wake up, you sleepyhead city! Wake up, you sleepyhead people! King-Glory is ready to enter

Revelation 3:20 – Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If ed hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to ed and dine with him, and ed with Me.

So, am i not hearing… no… i am hearing Him knocking. Is it that i am not hearing His voice? Perhaps i am hearing the knocking and i am hearing His voice but i am not opening the door? I say that because right now i do not “feel” as though i am about to sit down and dine with Him. Still i find myself saying there is nothing wrong but… it’s not right.

  1. Eve says:

    Bored? maybe. Disillusioned? Without a doubt. ready to compromise truth? No, not yet. I agree with your assessment about lack of intimate relationship equating to lack of intimacy with God, whichever came first. Why is it like this? Frustration, and deep loneliness of a follower looking for other followers asking open, honest questions that don’t come with pat answers. A place where it’s ok to be seeking answers without judgement or condescension, without having to explain who you are or where you have been to people who still assume a simple answer will suffice…
