A Breach in the Spirit


Proverbs 15:4

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.

  • Gossip
  • Anger
  • Pride
  • Vanity
  • 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.

Shari Johnson. (aka The Jesus Chick) has been encouraging women of faith and youth for a closer walk with Christ for over ten years. Having a burden for the leadership in American Churches, much of her writing is meant to spear on the servant of God to do more for the cause of Christ in these uncertain times. With humor, transparency and solid bible teaching Shari outlines messages that are easily understood, life applicable, and often with easily remembered points to ponder in hopes that they’ll be reflected on throughout the day and serve as encouragement on the go. Her servant’s heart is grounded in her own local church believing that it is there that the greatest impact can be made and unfortunately suffers the greatest neglect across America. Shari speaks at women’s gatherings in hopes of leaving a giggle in their soul and a burning desire to serve in their own local body of believers having it said of her “I laughed, I cried, and I was drawn to the foot of the cross…” Which is what it’s all about. For information on scheduling Shari, call her direct at (304)377-6036, message her via email at talk2shari@gmail.com or find her on Facebook!
