What If?

What If…..

…your Theology was put under a microscope every time you spoke?

…everything you did was reported on by the media?

…you were really good at something and because you were really good at it people put you on a pedestal only waiting for a chance to knock you down?

…people ignored any good you said or did because they were too busy talking about the one thing you said/did they didn’t agree with?

…every past mistake in your life was news worthy?

Would your witness stand the test?

Would you hold up under the spotlight?

Or would you need some grace, some mercy and some more time to get things right?

Consider this…(emphasis mine)

 Galatians 6 (KJV)

 1Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

 2Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

 3For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.

 4But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.

 5For every man shall bear his own burden.

 6Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.

 7Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

 8For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

 9And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

 10As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto ALL men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

 11Ye see how large a letter I have written unto you with mine own hand.

 12As many as desire to make a fair shew in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of Christ.

 13For neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the law; but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh.

 14But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.

 15For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.

 16And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

 17From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.

 18Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.

What if?
