You can't stand in the middle of the road...
I remember when I first answered "the call", on my life. It was a very strange place to be in. It's almost like entering the twilight zone (you need to have lived in the 80's to get this). Everything seems so unfamiliar, most often you answer and you have no idea of what happens next. I became really inward, I wanted to hear and draw closer to God. I wasn't trying to alienate anyone in my life, but I needed to become more intent in hearing God's voice. I became quiet and spent less time with my friends and more time with God.
I remember one day I got a phone call from a friend of mine,accusing me of being distant, of being disconnected and of not being a good friend. As a matter of fact she said, "You act like i'm the devil or something." That was not my intent or how I felt. I was just trying to find my position in Christ. I was becoming a "sell out". According to the dictionary a sell out is a person who betrays or turns to a traitor. I was turning from a life of luke warmness to a life to be led by Christ. Revelation 3:16, "I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other!" For me, God was saying you can't stay in the middle of the road, or you are going to get hit, choose one or the other. Even as a Christian we can stand in the middle of the road, applying the word liberally in some areas, and not as liberal in other areas. Get out of the middle of the road LaKisha...
