Rather than experiencing the epic fail, I gain the epic acceptance in Christ.
Somehow, I find...at times...I behave as if this is not true...I don't always react in obvious belief of the promise to not be shamed, rejected or embarrassed. Sometimes, I don't know how to respond...especially in familial situations where what I know about the folks does cause a governing on my mouth. But I do believe...so, why the disconnect?
Sovereign Lord, I know that I will be received by You for the One in Whom I put my trust is Faithful and True. I don't want to not include anyone in this promise...especially not those that I do love and share relationship with. Please help me to be forthright with the very Good News. Please give me discernment with regard to whom I should speak and what I should say. I know that not everyone will be saved; but I do know that You want none to be lost. Let me err on the side of everyone saved rather than some lost. Only You know the elect. Keep me from concern about what others think of me...secure in what You have said and done...help me to make the most of every opportunity You allow me to the praise of Your very great Name.
