A wholesome tongue is a tree of life; but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.
What an indictment against the believer… that was my though when I read only 4 verses into Proverbs 15. The past few days I’ve seen it many times. A festival atmosphere brings out the best and the worst in people. Calhoun County Wood Festival 2019 was no different.
It was there that I sat in a booth and listened and watched the people. Not in a creepy or judgmental way; but rather in the midst of their moment. They didn’t care if I was there. Some may have relished in the notion that I could here their words.
People laughed together, children ran and played, old friends visited and all of that was awesome! And then life happened. Someone didn’t get their way, things didn’t go as planned and literally all of of Hades broke loose. Foul language, nasty, hateful attitudes, judgmental, negative people and Christians were among the lot!
A breach in the Spirit
Christ cannot be a part of sin. and while He will never leave us nor forsake us, the word of God said that perverseness caused a breach, a break in our relationship with Christ. We’re not lost, but we’re not in His presence, and that was our choice when we chose to make the breach.
That broke my heart.
To think that I could cause the Lord such heartache that He would not want to be in my presence.
- Sin – body and mind
Forcing the Holy Spirit to be exposed to it because He chose to save my soul. I’ve been guilty.
The festival goers caused me to realize that I need a closer walk and the people need minsters of the gospel.
We need to leave this world a better place than we found it and we need to start by allowing them to see Jesus at work in our lives for the good.
I’ll be writing and broadcasting from the beach this week. Me and Jesus and my friend Glo. I hope you’ll join me as I see what Jesus has to say this week.
