Summary: I believe that most Christians are in the middle of where they can be in God. They don’t want to go too far for fear of what God might expect out of them. I believe that we need to break out from the middle and start heading to the lead of the pack.

Coming From Out Of The Middle Of The Pack

Isaiah 55:6-13

6 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:

7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.

9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:

11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

12 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the LORD for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.

I have entitled this today: “Coming Out of the Middle of the Pack”.

I believe that most Christians are in the middle of where they can be in God.

They don’t want to go too far for fear of what God might expect out of them.

I believe that, in the day we live in, we need to break out from the middle and start heading to the lead of the pack.

According to Duetronomy 28:44, we are to be the head and not the tail.

We are to be the ones who are leading the way for God’s Kingdom.

We have so called Christians who are in the pack who do not know their views on homosexuality marriages and abortions.

Let me make it plain. They are wrong and God will judge us for our belief system if they do not line up with the Word of God.

We need to start heading for the lead of the pack so we can lead the way that the Word of God teaches.

We are all running a race and we can all be victorious in the races that we are running.

Isaiah 55:6 says: Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:

The entirety of this verse as given by the Holy Spirit has a tone of reproach.

Israel, as well as all, must seek the Lord, without delay or the opportunity will pass.

This verse is warning us that there can come a time when the Lord cannot be found.

Isaiah 55:7

7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

This is a promise of forgiveness of sin upon repentance.

2Ch 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
