No Straddling Allowed

When lines are drawn and sides are picked, which side will you stand on?

The side of Christ or the side of the world? 

There can be no straddling of the line. 

Revelation 3:16-"But since you are like lukewarmwater, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth!

Your Words Expose the Real You

If you knew your words were being recorded, would you still say the things you did?

Would you still speak those hurtful words if you knew they would be shared with all your friends and family? Would you still speak those words if you knew they would be played for your church to hear?

Would you still speak those words, if you knew it would expose who you really are?

Your words might not be recorded but they are heard. The Lord hears them and in time you will be held accountable for every word spoken.

Your intentions for saying the things you did, do and will, He knows.

Before you even speak them, He knows your true intentions.

He knows if you intended to hurt others, cause controversy or stir up dissension. He knows why you spoke them, whether it was out of anger, jealous, spite or insecurity.

Not only does Jesus know the real you, but so do the people who are closest to you.

You might be able wear many disguises, but the Lord sees and knows the real you.

"A good person produces good words from a good heart, and an evil person produces evil words from an evil heart. And I tell you this, that you must give an account on judgment day of every idle word you speak. The words you say now reflect your fate then; either you will be justified by them or you will be condemned." Matthew 12:35-37

Believe as though every word you say is recorded and set to play for all to hear. For then maybe you will be mindful of the impact they will have on others and you on the day of judgement.
