It's the conversation that starts and someone says, Gotta go because I have so many things to do. It's bringing up an issue of controversy and the other person says, "Let's agree to disagree." But, there it stays, a can of worms left closed and rotting the core of the person that has so much upon their chest that it needs to come out but never does, or is not allowed to come out.
You see, God's desire is for his children to walk in complete freedom. The Lord doesn't want any darkness or even resemblance of shadows in our lives. He wants us completely free. Free to serve and love Him. Free to walk in Him and do His will. Free to experience the fullness of what He has for his children. Without freedom, we are bound and cannot fulfill all those great things God has shown you can happen.
So, what are you going to do about it? Shake yourself loose. You see, there are many folks out there that will reply to you, "I'm already in hell! I don't need Jesus and I don't need heaven! This life I have right now is hell in living color!"
And what will you and I respond? Will we turn red with embarrassment because we don't know what to say? Or will we be free enough in the Lord to be able to share God's message of Love, redemption, and hope to the angry and the hurting?
No more being unprepared for the response, "I'm already in hell!" We just gotta show them, we're already in heaven! We're experiencing kingdom life here on Earth. We have joy in the midst of the storm. What a great approach. Share any other ways to respond to this popular response to the Word, to street preachers, to those sharing the gospel. Your response is what we just might need.
