Christ Didn't Have to Grab Me by the Throat to Make Me Know He is the Word

By Cheryl G Burke

When you are filled with insight and you know all the answers to the world's problems, do you find it hard not to shout it from the rooftops? If this describes your everyday life, perhaps you would consider taking a look at the example Jesus set for any Avatar who would follow in His steps.

When you look at the life of Christ as noted in the Canonized group of books, called the Bible, you will find that the man who was and is God, chose not to cram down the throats of the many, His knowledge. So much so, that it seems as though many of His followers of today, believe they are the only ones who know the righteous way of delivering this message!

When you sit in a group of believers, are you ofttimes reminded that there are only a very limited number of people who will be joining Christ after they leave this world? Are you aware that those same people who are professing these words, believe they are some of the very limited number and that another denomination down the street is almost all destined for Hell?

Ever wonder how you got so lucky as to be in this group of eclectic followers who most often give God credit for calling to them, yet must take credit for their own obedience to procure such a position?

What if God has given the call to any who will obey? What if He has said He desires that none should perish? What if He says all we have to do is believe that Christ is the Son of God and that He came to show us the Way? Would that be enough for the group to comprehend that only He can know who will be saved?

I wonder what it would be like to have Him grab me by the throat to squelch the judgment I am so willing to share with others about who and how they are to be saved?

I truly hope I can sit in quiet instruction from my Lord, in the depths of my being and hear Him say, "Well done thou good and faithful child", this because I listened and comprehended the fact that He does not need me to reach a lost land, He is God, He can make worshipers out of the rocks, why should I think I have any more right to Gods blessings than any other.

As a matter of fact, I don't have any more of a right than any other, nor does anyone else! Peace, love and hope are offered for all, the beauty is, at any given moment we can open the channel of this Almighty love, be filled with the greatness of its being, and know peace beyond comprehension. Simply by asking, He freely gives His blessing to any!
