I love sitting in a crowd where people quote the scripture, where we talk God 24/7 I think it is beautiful. and I sat with many Christians. but then I started noticing none of these people left their circle. What is the point of being Christ like if you are hiding it in the closet? I don’t want to sit in a crowd where everyone knows the bible and high fives them self. I want to sit in the crowds nobody else does. I want to sit with criminals, with drug dealers, with addicts. I want to sit in the middle of broken people and say Hi my name is Michelle let me tell you of Jesus who saves. Jesus who heals, Jesus who delivers.
It is fun to sit with others who know God and high five each other. but my heart is in people like the former me. I don’t want to sit with seven generation holy people. I mean no offense you don’t know my struggle, or the struggle of life and truth be told you should thank God if that is you. Thank God for keeping you sheltered. but I was not sheltered. I was in the wilderness. I was in the desert, in the valley of death is where I lived so I don’t care for comfortable Christianity. Especially when I noticed all my Christians had no problem telling me what was evil, and how I should act but can’t even speak the Gospel to the lost. I left that crowd.
I would rather sit with homeless people, drug dealers, addicts. people with problems who know they aren’t perfect. I see many say they love God, but they only speak God in the church. They only speak God in front of their other Christian friends. and that is fine and dandy. I don’t want to judge any but in my heart I just feel so this is why Jesus died? I asked God that one day and God told me to look at the scriptures deeper and so I did.
But then again I am one of the ones who was sent among wolves and maybe perhaps all Christian people can not do that. maybe there was a reason Paul was chosen and did not agree with others. I really don’t know. I just know I hardly want to sit among people who know the Lord, because honestly most of their hearts are not mine. I see many say Jehovah witness are false.Mormons are false but how many Christians you know that deliver the Gospel to you door to door? They are into comfortable Christianity. Are they wrong? I don’t know all I know is my heart is not them.
I use to get so angry (kind of still do too honestly) nobody spoke about sin. Nobody called people out of sin. Then I said LORD here I am! I will go and so I did. I think that is one of the reasons I never took the Christian label. I never knew what it was most of my life. and now I know and I still don’t want the label. I would rather be Michelle. Because honestly some of today’s Christianity is worldly and that is truth and God says come out of these things, be not part of them! and so I did listen to God. Some, God calls separated and I am beginning to think I am one of them. Not boasting or bragging but seriously I do not care a lot for comfortable Christianity and those who can only speak Gospel in their church. it is people like that why so many go on broken and hurting, because they never know God can save them, because the ones with the knowledge sit among each other and never give it out to any new.
Sorry these words were not written to offend any but truly just how I feel. I understand all things work for God. Just truly glad to be out of the comfortable Christianity crowd and that is truth. I truly apologize if I offend any. That was not the purpose of this message. Was just mostly venting. have a blessed day dear people.
In the bible I read the justified are those who feed the homeless. those who heal the wounded. Those who are servants. Sitting in a crowd around people who know Jesus is not the only justification. I do truly pray many of us grow out of comfortable Christianity and may we be doers instead of people who preach to our self. For that is what comfortable Christianity is. I will stay where it is safe and speak Jesus among everyone else who speaks Jesus. The way of the world. I also believe in my heart the comfortable Christians are the ones who would flee in half a second when it came to needing help. Just something I observed in my own life.
