Perhaps you have heard it said as a Christian we do not stand still in our communion with the Christ.
We have been told we are either inching (some sprinting, some a steady jog) forward in our knowledge of and intimacy with Him or we are regressing and our intimacy is declining. It would be to our advantage (and to the advantage of those we love) to evaluate ourselves regularly to be certain we are staying spiritually healthy.
Now, this afternoon I read 2 Timothy 3: 13 and I am paused right there to share.
As Christians do not stand still, I think neither does the un-Christian.
2 Timothy 3: 13 But evil men and imposters will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. source
See? From bad to worse.
Those not yet in covenant with JESUS do not stand still in their disrespect of Him or their rebellion against Him. And it seems to me the longer folks say no thank You to JESUS, the more deceived they become. It seems to me that should move me to act on their behalf.
On to verse fourteen (14) . . . for another post, maybe.
