Every once in a while my wife pulls these little gems out of thin air. For instance, we were talking the other night before going to sleep. I told her that I used to know a man who liked being around Christians. He even wanted his children to be Christians. However, he didn’t want to be a Christian. He didn’t want to live by “those rules.” Even though in reality he did live by almost every Biblical rule I can think of.
My wife said that he’s so lost; he acknowledges the sunbeams but not the sun. How true. How many people want to be around Christians? How many people like what we stand for, like our moral life, like our work ethic? Yet the refuse to acknowledge the source of all that good behavior they so admire.
Boy are they in for a shock one day.
Adonai, I acknowledge you before all men!
