Do Not Isolate Yourself Do Not Hide
If we accept Jesus Christ and are born again we will not fit into the world any more. We will be rejected and persecuted. Friends and family will turn their back on us and we might feel ourselves ALONE. Many who come to Jesus feel that they must isolate themselves, go into hiding like in a monastery. But Jesus Christ did not call us to hide away. He called us to be LIGHT in darkness, our light must SHINE in this world.
Others might run away from us but we have no reason to run away from them. They are in bondage of sin. They are in bondage of satan and Jesus Christ has set us free. We are the free men and women among those in bondage, the captives. We are called to set them free. We are called to bring them to Jesus Christ so that He can set them free from their bondage to sin.
He who sins is a slave, a slave to sin. If we follow Jesus Christ we are FREE. We are free to do the will of God. we do not need the acceptance of men. All we need is Jesus Christ. He knows to look after His children.
Jesus Christ said that we must seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all the other things will be added unto us. We don't need to seek friends or the acceptance of men, or their favors.
All we need is Jesus Christ because we are free and they are in bondage. We must bring them to the freedom of the sons of God. We are the light of the world, we are the salt of the earth. If we go into hiding we are worthless for the kingdom of God. Our light must shine for Jesus. We must LIVE and DO and BE that which He called us for. We must serve His purpose and we must build the kingdom of God and we cannot do that if we withdraw, isolate ourselves, run away, go into hiding.
We have to STAND in the Name of Jesus Christ, STAND for righteousness, holiness and the devil will run from you.
If we STAND in the Name of the Lord then we will conquer because Jesus Christ has overcome the world and if Jesus Christ is in us then we ourselves are overcomers, because we trust in HIM and not on ourselves. He has set us free for a purpose.
Are we serving that purpose or are we running away? Are we going into hiding, into isolation? Let your light SHINE for Jesus.
May Jesus bless you.
