Have you ever felt liked you couldn’t escape something God was trying to teach you? For example, a word that keeps popping up EVERY. WHERE. In music, scripture, conversations…no matter how far you run. It’s still there!
Well, lately…that word is dust. Ironic…because there is no dust to be found in KC right now. We’ve gotten too much snow to even imagine it’s under there somewhere.
In scripture Jesus sends the disciples out, tells them not take anything with them…and share the message. Tell the story. But…if people refuse to listen, shake the dust off their feet and leave the town.
Seems drastic, right? To shake off that earthly dust in holy protest?
But it begs the question…what if our earthly words are not going to get through? What if we’ve done our part and its time to move on to what God has next…to leave the rest to Him?
It all comes down to what you believe, and what you choose to hear…
I tell you the truth, we speak of what we know, and we testify to what we have seen, but still you people do not accept our testimony. I have spoken to you of earthly things and you do not believe; how then will you believe if I speak of heavenly things? [John 3:11-12]
If we cannot believe God’s words about earthly things…we will never understand his Kingdom language. And without Kingdom language…what are we truly living for? This earthly world is not enough for me, and it shouldn’t satisfy you, either.
