Sometimes… Jesus Allows me to Sit in the Audience.

There is within an anxious desire to tell others of Jesus.  Practicing believers in “The Way” are wired like that.

Early on… i felt like every time i did not tell someone about Jesus, i had failed.  Usually while in this muck, i failed because i feared rejection.  But then, i discovered the abiding love and grace of Jesus, not guilt and fear.  Slowly i began to appreciate the reality of this man called Jesus, truly and actively abiding within my person.

So today, i still have an anxious desire to tell others of Jesus and i am watchful for the time God orchestrates the unique circumstance and person to share His love with.  It is then, i hope to be obedient and not fearful.

So yes.  The line is drawn and it is drawn by God.  He sets the stage and sometimes allows us to participate in the play called, “Jesus”.  But there is no guilt and no fear.  There is only freedom to do as He does.  Nothing more.  Nothing less.  Sometimes, He even allows us to sit in the audience.

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".
