What Message Is Contained On The Billboard Of Your Life?
But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows, And saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented. For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil. The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children. (Matthew 11:16-19 KJV)
It did not matter what Jesus, or individuals following Him did, they were never found right in the eyes of those who desired to follow after the god of this world. The ancient times are much like the times we live in today. The popular opinion based upon the god of this world fuels the majority, or stirs up the loudest crowd of participants willing to stand staunchly in enmity to the will and way of God, choosing rather to follow after the evil of god of this world. Many billboards in this world are dark and evil rather than filled with light.
True followers of God come bearing the Truth and light of Christ. They are stand out in this world. They choose to separate from evil and darkness by bearing light and Truth. Biblical messengers of ancient times such as Paul and John the Baptist shined the light of Truth, rather than choosing to blend in with the world’s crowd hidden among many socially popular billboard messages in this world.
The message of God will never return empty, as it eternally attaches to the heart of those as God wills. (Isaiah 55:11)
The present generation who chooses to live according to the god of this world, just as some did in biblical times, are always critical of the message containing the Truth of God. The Truth will always penetrate the hearts and mind of those who desire to hear it.
