Today, right now, this moment begs the question - have we settled into mediocre?
Have we found, once again, that comfortable place where that still small voice is silenced? Do we blend in just enough that we are not recognized by our differences; that we feel no real surge to make a difference in the world?
Is the Spirit that has been poured out for us, as believers, causing us to rise up within the weight of this world?
Or are we settling like the fizzing of a freshly poured soda quieting itself into the syrupy beverage (the popular beverage, that some consider "pure death," or at the very least, when consumed over and over, is considered "detrimental to our health.")?
Are we not meant to bubble over with the Spirit's awaking? To drink from His cup, which is life?
"Taste and see that the LORD is good..." Psalm 34:8
Will we say, " For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes..."? Romans 1:16
Will we stand out like a fresh can of soda pop bubbling over the rim of it's glass, overflowing into a mess - a foolish, worthy mess?
How is your life bubbling over and bringing God glory?
God has raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of the fact. Exalted to the right hand of God, he has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit and has poured out what you now see and hear. Acts 2:32-33
