Simply...Living For Him

Some Random Thoughts From This Week

I am reading Mark Cahill’s One Thing You Can’t Do in Heaven and have really been thinking about how I share my faith, or how I lack. Cahill includes this poem in his book:

My friend, I stand in judgment now
And feel that you’re to blame somehow
While on this earth I walked with you day by day
And never did you point the way
You knew the Lord in truth and glory
But never did you tell the story
My knowledge then was very dim
You could have led me safe to him
Though we lived together here on earth
You never told me of your second birth
And now I stand this day condemned
Because you failed to mention him
You taught me many things, that’s true
I called you friend and trusted you
But now I learned, now it’s too late
You could have kept me from this fate
We walked by day and talked by night
And yet you showed me not the light
You let me live, love and die
And all the while you knew I’d never live on high
Yes, I called you friend in life
And trusted you in joy and strife
Yet in coming to this end
I see you really weren’t my friend
Powerful right?

Now I believe that it is God who ultimately lifts the scales from someone’s eyes, and He wakes up a soul to the Truth, yet we are commanded to go and tell. We are commanded to play our part in God’s plan. So often we don’t share the Truth because we are afraid of rejection, yet Jesus suffered the ultimate rejection. We are afraid of what people will think, or losing a friend, but truth is, eternity is a long time to be separated from a friend. If we love people, we must tell them. Tell them the One and Only Truth that will set them free.

On another note, I have also been contemplating simplifying my time. I posed this question the other day on facebook:
How are you simplifying your time these days?
