SHEEP OR GOAT?

There is a time coming that will separate the sheep from the goats.  The goats will be entertainment-centered people with no real burden for the lost.  Yes, they may reach out once in a while to salve their conscience, but they will never turn the world upside down.  When they think of heaven, they think of dear old mom and dad or grandma and grandpa or perhaps a child who died young. Seeing Jesus is an asterisk.  They honor the Lord by giving him worship on Sundays and a sacrificial; offering, but otherwise their lives aren’t much different from Mormons.  They eschew going to bars or ribald entertainment. They do not curse and they support family-friendly causes.


They believe what they believe and are not easily persuaded when God’s ways are described to them.  Some like spiritual power, and may appear to be able to heal and cast out devils, but in fact they have no knowledge of God.  These folks will all take a very hard fall when they explain to the Lord how great they are but Jesus simply says, “Depart from me, you workers of iniquity – I never knew you!

On the other hand, there are sheep. Sheep who are willing to graze in the field. People who are willing to be shepherded. They have no dreams and ambitions other than totally pleasing the Lord Christ. They ask him about everything and take nothing for granted. They do not count our their giving but simply give it if there is a need they can help fill. The do not command Christ or demand he keep his word. Rather they inquire of the Lord and do his bidding. They revere fellow soldiers in the Army of the Lord and will freely die for them. They endure hardness and do not complain when tested. They are loyal to Christ and never allow for ANY other religion to claim equality with God’s religion. For them, to live IS Christ, to die IS gain. They hold nothing tightly except their faith in God and in his precious one and only son, Jesus Christ. They are 100% loyal to him and enjoy talking to him throughout the day and night and seek to make his name and glories known.

Are you a goat or a sheep?
