Black, White and Red
Tuesday’s post A Little Color amused me as I recently labeled myself a black and white girl. I like black and white! Even though bold sunsets and landscapes bursting bright with color delight my eyes and thrill my soul, still I’m a black and white girl. Shall I explain?
Life is pretty much black and white for me; naturally there are exceptions but over all it’s black and white for me. Not much gray.
In this culture of political correctness and certain demands for tolerance – that gives me a chuckle. Know why? Because the one demanding tolerance is exhibiting no tolerance by the very act of demanding tolerance. I told you. Life is pretty much black and white to me.
There’s right and there’s wrong. There’s sin. There’s righteousness. Take your pick. And I do. I wish I could say I always pick white (Righteousness) but I don’t. Scripture is true.
9 “The heart is more deceitful than anything else and mortally sick. Who can fathom it? Jeremiah 17:9 (CJB)
In GOD’s economy, a black heart is not what you want. A mortally sick soul that chooses evil over good is deadly. But that’s the black and white of it. We are either in Christ or we are not. (See Romans 8:8-10. Click HERE.) Daily, moment by moment we either choose to sin or not to sin. It’s that black and white. And what’s sin and what’s not sin? Well, that’s black and white for me too. The answers are in the BOOK. It’s all there laid out for us to read, learn and heed.
What can I say this black and white girl is so very grateful for the red, red blood of Jesus. Because of this Living Savior, because of His Spirit within more and more I can choose right over wrong.
Yep this girl likes the starkness of black and white looking through RED because it makes choices a whole lot easier!
