Cross The Line!

November 13th, 2014

David McCracken

Dear Friends,

Is there a decision that you know God has challenged you with, but you find yourself forever postponing the need to cross the line?

In John 5, we read about a pool:
‘Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew, Bethesda, having five porches. In these lay a great multitude of sick people, blind, lame, paralyzed, waiting for the moving of the water. For an angel went down at a certain time (an appointed time) into the pool and stirred up the water; then whoever stepped in first, after the stirring of the water, was made well of whatever disease he had.’ (John 5:2-4)

Why did the blessing go to the one that got in first? I believe it was attitude. For that one to get in first, they would have had to be vigilant, alert, hungry, ready; like a sprinter waiting for the starter’s gun. It was an attitude of desperation and determination. They would have flung themselves headlong into the waters the second something started to happen.

Holy abandonment. No thought of retaining one’s dignity. Nothing mattered but getting into that pool! If you get in my way, be prepared to get pushed aside with vehemence!
It was an attitude!

Oh, how God is looking for such today. God forgive us that we have put dignity before passion, logic before faith and self-interest before obedience. Friends, the will of God remains as a potential alone as long as it is paralysed by our indecision.

The burden of my heart is to declare to you: “It is the appointed time!” Stop fussing about it! Pursue! What is it that God has spoken to you to be done that still remains undone?
Now is the appointed time!

Will you have the attitude of one at the Pool of Bethesda?
Will you seize the moment?
Clothed in His grace and empowered for His service,
