For the Fence Sitters
You have yet to make a final choice for Me. Instead, you vacillate between your fleshly desires and the abundance of life I would give you. You stand far from Me, seeking My hand, but go your way and never stop long enough to give Me glory, when I, in My mercy, respond to your requests. Do you not realize I am more than just the answer to your need? I am your salvation; the One who redeems your life from destruction. Allow Me to meet not only your physical needs but your spiritual ones, as well. Do not stand at a distance. If you draw close to Me, I will draw close to you. Seek Me while I may be found. Now is the time of decision for the chasm between us is growing, and the fence you sit on opposes Me.
Luke 17:11-19, “On his way to Yerushalayim [Jerusalem], Yeshua passed along the border country between Shomron [Samaria] and Galil. As he entered one of the villages, ten men afflicted with tzara’at [leprosy] met him. They stood at a distance and called out, ‘Yeshua! Rabbi! Have pity on us!’ On seeing them, he said, ‘Go and let the cohanim [priests] examine you!’ And as they went, they were cleansed. One of them, as soon as he noticed that he had been healed, returned shouting praises to God, and fell on his face at Yeshua’s feet to thank him. Now he was from Shomron [Samaria]. Yeshua said, ‘Weren’t ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? Was no one found coming back to give glory to God except this foreigner?’ And to the man from Shomron He said, ‘Get up, you may go; your trust has saved you.’ CJB
Is. 55:6-7, “Seek ADONAI while He is available, call on Him while He is still nearby. Let the wicked person abandon his way and the evil person his thoughts; let him return to ADONAI, and he will have mercy on him; let him return to our God, for he will freely forgive.” CJB
James 4:8-10, “Come close to God and He will come close to you. Clean your hands, sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded people! Wail, mourn, sob! Let your laughter be turned into mourning and your joy into gloom! Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will lift you up.” CJB
