Being with Christ
Jesus says, ‘Whoever is not with me is against me;
And whoever does not gather with me, scatters.’
I sometimes feel my life is like scrubland,
halfway between garden and desert.
I sometimes feel I live in a world of twilight,
halfway between day and night.
I sometimes feel like lukewarm water,
halfway between hot and cold.
I sometimes feel I am in a state of indifference,
halfway between love and hate.
I sometimes feel I am trudging along a safe little path halfway between good and evil.
Lord, save me from the illusion
that because I am not against you, I am therefore for you.
Above all, save me from being neutral.
