Day 11: Step Out


Paul asks a question to the Galatians

in an around about way if

they are a FOOL or a FOLLOWER.

A FOOL, as they were forgetting what they have believed.

But maybe it got harder .

Maybe because they were being persecuted,

or called "BLESSED" as JESUS defines it~

"Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you,

and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for MY sake" (Matthew 5:11)

Hmm....

BLESSED to be a FOLLOWER of JESUS.

Sort of sounds like being a FOOL.

So maybe just maybe that is my problem

as I am a FOOLISH FOLLOWER of JESUS.

I am a PRODIGAL of this world

which makes me look like a FOOL,

but I would rather be called a FOOLISH FOLLOWER of JESUS

then to give up my identity IN HIM.

Oh precious JESUS~

YOU are the way the truth snd the life (John 14:16).

Oh precious JESUS~

WHOMEVER FOLLOWS YOU

"then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free" (John 8:32)

.Oh precious JESUS~

YOUR TRUTH does set the captives free.

The captives who are so captivated by the ways of this world

that go against everything~

GOD & JESUS said & the HOLY SPIRIT

who lives within every FOOLISH FOLLOWER who calls themselves

A lover of JESUS.

Why would I throw the towel in now when the battle is fierce?

Do I remain silent and continue to forgive 70x7?

Oh yes.

Do I continue to pray for the lost?

Oh yes

Do I continue to grieve for those who have walked away from being a FOOLISH FOLLOWER? Oh yes.

Do I continue to press forward despite the opposition

because "the LORD your GOD will be with you wherever you go” (Joshua 1:9)

Oh the journey may get lonely,

but I have to count the cost the discipleship

and it is worth it to be a FOOLISH FOLLOWER,

for when I am weak HE is strong (Philippians 4:13).

Oh will you be a FOOLISH FOLLOWER,

a PRODIGAL who keeps on going even when the going gets tough,

because "HE who is in you is greater than HE who is in the world" (I John 4:4)

Thank YOU JESUS for calling me & everyone who

FOLLOWS YOU

BLESSED

and thank YOU for journeying together with us as

YOU take us HOMEWARD BOUND forever and ever in YOU

because

IN CHRIST~

"Everything of GOD gets expressed in HIM, so you can see and hear HIM clearly.

You don’t need a telescope, a microscope, or a horoscope to realize the fullness of CHRIST, and the emptiness of the universe without HIM. When you come to HIM,

that fullness comes together for you, too. HIS power extends over everything" (Colossians 2:9)

Because "there is nothing better than you" (from GRAVES INTO GARDENS, listen below)
