You Can’t Get It, Until You’ve Got Him

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:7–8, NIV 1984).

My Musings – I don’t know about you, but in addition to being saddened by much that goes on in today’s culture, on occasion (maybe more than I’d like to admit) I also get angry. Why can’t people get it, whatever the current “it” happens to be. This past week “it” was the backlash when the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. It is times like these that I have to remind myself that people cannot be expected to get “it,” until they’ve got Him. That it is not within my “power” to make them get “it,” but I have received the power to be a witness to how they can get Him.

My Advice – Let’s not be angry because the sheep are lost. Let’s be happy to we can show them the how to find their way home.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.

  1. Hi Steve, I agree, addressing why they are blind and not what they don’t see. Jesus did this Himself when He spoke to Nicodemus, identifying all of the evil works of darkness as being the result of not being born again and believing in the Son of God. The only times Jesus addressed evil works specifically, was when He addressed the Pharisees for their following and advocating their own traditions versus the Commandments of God because they were supposed to be the teachers of Israel. Same thing with the Sadducees regarding their beliefs. And this is in line with what the Apostle Paul said about we were not to judge those outside of the Church, but only those who were inside the Church. It’s important to comprehend these things because Jesus told us to “learn of me”.

    Jesus doesn’t condone the sin of common sinners, but He also doesn’t condemn the sinner. He is the only One who can rightly condemn, and yet he offers overwhelming, astonishing grace to all of us. While many Christians are out condemning sinners, Jesus did the opposite – He gave His very life to bear sinners’ sin and condemnation on the cross – for all who would trust in Him. I find it difficult to comprehend how we as Christians still haven’t grasped this. Blessings brother!
