Sometimes Jesus intersects our lives. I know some of you hate that statement!! He ought to BE our lives! We ought to be in sync with Him at every impass. Maybe you are there. Often I get ahead of the God. (I am not sure that is theologically possible either). Anyways! This week I had one of those “GOD MOMENTS”. It was a “call to the wall,” moment.
Reading the parable of the sower and the seed, Jesus lays it out and then walks away. I think he pretty much had everyone confused. His disciples say, What was that about? Jesus says, “to some I speak in parables, SO THAT,” and then he goes on to tell them that sometimes His message is intended for those who are “insiders,” for those that have chosen to be a part of the family of God.
It was a call to commitment. A call to the wall. What is the message of the Church? The answer to this is the same answer to the question Jesus gives his disciples. “Who do you say that I am?” YOU ARE THE CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD!
I want to be TOTALLY Committed to the GOSPEL of JESUS Christ. That is the name, that is what my life is all about! Does my calendar reflect that? Does my checkbook? Does my lifestyle? Do I love Jesus? Do I love the people in my church? Do I love the people in my world?
The “Call To The Wall” has everything to do with Love and Commitment! I am “ALL IN!” Are You?
