IN THE Gospel of MATTHEW, CHAPTER 10, verse 16 we read, “Behold, I am sending you like sheep in the midst of wolves; so be shrewd as serpents and simple as doves.”
AND For those of us who are Christian...THIS IS OUR MISSION...!!!
If we truly want to follow Christ, we must be aware that we are being sent to proclaim THE GOOD NEWS (that is what gospel means), to a world ‘like sheep in the midst of wolves’...SO...
We must act as SIMPLE AS DOVES and as SHREWD AS SERPENTS...following the movements and prompting of THE HOLY SPIRIT...THIS IS TRUE HUMILITY...
NOT the meeky mosey connotation of HUMILITY which the wolves of the world attempt to define for us...!!!
WE MUST BE BOLD AND OBEDIENT TO THE HOLY SPIRIT and we must put into practice the TONGUES OF FIRE which fell on the first DISCIPLES OF CHRIST, and which were intended to be passed on to Jesus’ Church for over 2000 years now...!!!
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND, PRAY FOR OUR COUNTRY, and FOLLOW THE LORD WITH BOLDNESS AND OBEDIENCE...!!!
