I was thinking of how I’ve often heard people tell new believers that they might not always feel so “high” on Christ (for lack or a better word) as the day when they first believed, but they should be careful to remember “this day” if they should begin to doubt their new faith. I’m certain they meant well, but just typing those words makes me sad. The word travesty sprang to my mind and stayed all day.
It’s actually still there, so I just did a quick online dictionary search of the word. Here’s the short version: a grotesque imitation. Precisely.
May such a warning never pass our lips again. Oh, that every new believer was instead challenged and encouraged to know that the moment when they first taste Christ is only the beginning of His work in them, just the first taste of a life above what the world calls living, that the one who saves them wants to reveal Himself to them more fully day by day until they meet him face to face.
I hope you’re having a Wonderful Wednesday!
