I've always seemed to march to a drummer who's a beat off. As I dwell on this earth amongst others, who I am and what I believe seem to be continually in conflict with others. It took me a while in my walk, not to be intimidated by these conflicts. As my journey translated into a loving relationship with my Heavenly Father, I understood that those beats, were those of His own Heart. The Spirit of Truth whispers daily into my heart, words of encouragement, words of faith. To walk in a way that reflects the Glory of God and to stand for truth always. I see lot of people, Christians, to be specific, seemingly comfortable in their day to day surroundings. Blended into the woven fabric of this society. Having worldviews that, at times, mix the secular and biblical. There have been times, when I happen upon a person, conversing with them, only to be surprised later that they profess themselves Christian. Being able to differentiate between a Christian and a non-believer is becoming difficult as time draws nearer to His return. And I wonder, at times, who their drummer is.
"These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth." Hebrews 11:13
