~ "Listen..."

And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. (Rev 4:5)

Final judgement.  Will we be here for the end or have already gone on?  Insomuch as I would love to see Jesus riding in on His white horse, I don't know that I'd want to be here for what will come next.

Living a life that's pleasing to God is a choice each of us make.  We all think we are doing our very best being good "Christians", yet some lie and steal from one another in order to come out ahead.  Some fight each other for better wages, for less work, better education which they don't use and hoard their "things" as if they were made of gold.  They don't share without a price, they don't give without receiving.  Yet they do read the Word of God, they do worship, they do attend a church and tithe.

No, I'm not pointing fingers.  I'm reminding each of you, as well as myself, that living a life that is pleasing to God comes with constant and continuous re-evaluation of ourselves.  We become our own judges - our conscience tells us if we are in the right place.  

If it is telling you to move - then move!  If it is telling you to stop - then stop!  Don't ignore that "still small voice" that will guide you in the right direction.  Listen...
