The misguided and disoriented are the sheep Jesus is seeking to lead back home. He is seeking those who are spiritually separated from God, the Father, who are spiritually living away from the family of God’s Son and God’s children, those following a seductive leader known as “Satan, the devil”, and who are living in a mystified attitude of personal sinful self-indulgences and willing rebellion against God.
Such individuals may be religious and accept various religious labels as part of their personal identifications. They may be familiar with Jesus and God, the Father, and even have read parts of the Bible and be active in some church or synagogue. They may consider themselves to be good, decent, law-abiding citizens of any established civil society anywhere in the world. They may be of any ethnic and racial background. But they are spiritually lost, separated from God, traveling through life on a wide road of self-indulgent pleasure and popular philosophy that will lead them to damnation and torment, a place of everlasting separation from God and personal suffering in their souls.
Anyone who is not living in a personal spiritual relationship with God through the indwelling presence of Jesus and the transforming power of God’s Holy Spirit is lost, unable to experience God’s Grace, mercy, and love and to experience the daily blessings of life in His family.
Those of us that have a message to share with others, do it in a peaceful loving fashion, commonly known as “Proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ”.
We don’t take to the streets to riot, nor do we condone setting fires to buildings, flashing signs of perversion, and we certainly don’t cause bodily harm to those who oppose our Judeo/Christian beliefs.
Our comfort rests in the arms of our heavenly Father, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. “Jesus is the answer, for the world today.”
Evangelist Al Garza
