When my wife was a child growing up they lived where you could look out the front door and you would be staring at a 10 ft. waterfall with a lagoon at the bottom. It was beautiful!
There was a mammoth tree in the front yard on the bank of the creek just below the waterfalls that stood majestic. She was telling me that when she was a child they would run around that tree and play, but as the years passed the SLOW EROSION process happened while life went on and night passed to day. When I saw it the roots were now completely exposed, and the last time we went and looked, THE TREE WAS GONE.
A bowl of ice cream comes out of the freezer frozen. It is not liquid the moment you take it out. Over time that once frozen treat has become a soupy milk treat.
WHEN WE FOLLOW JESUS THE DEVIL KNOWS THAT HE CANNOT STEAL YOUR PASSION IMMEDIATELY. HE KNOWS JESUS AUTHENTICALLY CHANGED YOU AND YOU KNOW THAT TOO. SO TO DO A DRAMATIC MOVE WOULD COMPLETELY EXPOSE HIS PLOT OF EROSION.
A slow process….
Stop reading the Word as often.
Stop going to church every week.
Start hanging out again with people you needed to get away from.
Stop ministry in your life.
IT IS NEVER FAST…..
IT IS ALWAYS SLOW EROSION OR YOU WOULD BE CONCERNED INSTEAD OF LULLED TO DEATH!
1 Tim. 4:1a, Now the Holy Spirit tells us clearly that in the last times some will turn away from the true faith….
Heb 5:11, There is much more we would like to say about this, but it is difficult to explain, especially since you are spiritually dull and don’t seem to listen.
Rev. 2:2-3, Wake up! Strengthen what little remains, for even what is left is almost dead. I find that your actions do not meet the requirements of my God. 3 Go back to what you heard and believed at first; hold to it firmly. Repent and turn to me again. If you don’t wake up, I will come to you suddenly, as unexpected as a thief.
ARREST THE EROSION BEFORE YOUR TREE HAS EXPOSED ROOTS AND THEN YOU FALL INTO THE CREEK THAT DESTROYED YOUR BASE.
