Wearing another mask.

Posted by appolus on May 21, 2020

I think one of the great upcoming ironies will be when folks return to “church” they will be wearing masks. Think about that for a minute. How often was the complaint made that folks in ” church” wore masks? They smiled and told you everything was OK when it was not. They asked you how you were but would run a mile if your answer was anything other than ” I’m fine.”

For the most part that was “fellowship.” Never really getting to know the people because they wore their ” Sunday go to church,” masks. Fellowship so shallow that it would barely wet your ankles. Now people will actually be wearing masks. Another layer of anonymity.

God is not a hundred miles wide and an inch deep. Neither is the fellowship that He forges among His children. His depths are unlimited. So is the potential for fellowship among a people that He calls out. A transparent people who are willing to be “seen.”

The heights and the depths and the length of His love has no measure. It is pure and undefiled. He calls us into this fellowship with Him and with each other. A place of trust, a place of transparency, a place without masks. Here I am. This is who I am in Christ. Can you see my heart? Can I see yours?

We stand, unlike the world, unmasked before men. What you see in the genuine Body of Christ is what you get. While the whole world is donning “masks” to protect itself from unseen dangers lurking in the darkness. The Body of Christ is being unmasked to the world in His marvelous light. He is building His Church for all the world to see. And they shall be totally immersed in a river so deep that you must give yourself to its current.

    When we know deep in our very being that we are loved by the Father no matter what, we are secure in that. And we can be transparent. The opposite of that keeps the mask on, so people will think what we want them to think . The most extreme end of that was how Ananias and Sapphira lived. Hypocrisy. To know we are loved to live and dwell in His love, is our hearts desire and I believe His as well .

      I have experienced that of tasting & knowing the deep love of God for my first time .. God awakened me & I saw all my past not as bad anymore, but grateful, used to shape me, He worked it for good. I was humbled, committed & awoke to Him each day. Until a big stress that seemed to deaden me. I noticed I put my everything is fine mask back on, embarrassed to say anything to a group so committed. I went back into hiding. I don’t know how to be real .. it doesn’t feel safe.

        The only safe place Diane is in His arms and following His lead. We may lose some friends along the way as we walk this narrow path but in the end the only thing that matters is how we walk with Him. This thing that has come to test you shall be overcome in Jesus. You just get up each day and put one foot in front of the other and keep on walking………………….bro Frank

      Indeed sister. Some people are not transparent because they want to give a certain impression to others, they want others to think better of them. Yet, there is another group who keep silent because they fear if they are transparent they will be rejected or judged. The Lord knows. The solution is the same though. Speaking the truth in love and living openly and honestly before men and the world. We have an audience of one, and when we understand that the watching world gets a glimpse into a peron in whom there is no guile…………………….bro Frank
