I am a slave to Jesus. That sounds awkward these days but that is the truth I must know. I am here to do what Jesus wants me to.
I am called by God for this role. I am kept safe by Jesus the Messiah. I am under His watch and care. I can relax. Everything is going to be alright. Everything’s coming together. I must open my heart. Love is on the way. Love will not be delayed at all. God is in a very good mood.
I must drop everything to write and talk about this life of salvation that God has given me. I share it in common with all the brothers and sisters who are disciples of Jesus. It is nothing unique to me.
I must beg everyone to fight the good fight of faith. It is such a precious gift. I must guard it. I must cherish it.
What has happened is that some people have infiltrated our ranks, who beneath their pious skin are shameless scoundrels. Their design is to replace the sheer grace of our God with sheer license — which means doing away with Jesus the Messiah, our one and only Master. This is sad but I see it everyday in many religious elite leaders. Politics and politically correct diversity is leading many astray. It is shameful and disgraceful.
I’m laying this out as clearly as I can. We all know this well enough and shouldn’t need reminding.
Here it is in brief: The Master saved a people out of the land of Egypt. Later he destroyed those who defected. And we know the story of the angels who didn’t stick to their post, abandoning it for other, darker missions. But they are now chained and jailed in a black hole until the great Judgment Day.
Sodom and Gomorrah, which went to sexual rack and ruin along with the surrounding cities that acted just like them, are another example. Burning and burning and never burning up, they serve still as a stock warning.
I must (and we must) stick with the word of God that we have received. God is clear about all of this. God has a plan. We can’t throw it away for political expediency and the desire to be liked by a corrupt culture that hates us for following Jesus.
