Fence Man

Man sitting on long white fence and crossed his fingers.

You do not have to ask me twice whose team I would follow, because I would choose God every single time.  However, if you find yourself along the side lines watching from a distance, because you  doubt God and you are not allowing Him to be a part of every aspect of your life, then the following story is definitely for you.

There was a large group of people gathered. On one side of the group stood a man, Jesus. On the other side stood another, Satan. Separating them was a fence running through the group. The scene set, both Jesus and Satan began calling to people in the group. One by one, each having made up his or her own mind, went to either Jesus or Satan. This kept going for a time. Soon enough, Jesus had gathered around him a group of people from the larger crowd, as did Satan.

One man joined neither group. He climbed the fence that was there and sat on it. Jesus and his people left and disappeared, and so too did Satan and his people. The man on the fence sat alone. As this man sat, Satan came back, looking for something which he appeared to have lost. The man said, “Have you lost something?” Satan looked straight at him and replied, “No, there you are. Come with me.” The man said, “But I sat on the fence. I chose neither you nor him.” Satan said, “That’s okay; I own the fence.”

Clearly, you can see there is no in between.  As our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ said, “Whoever is not with me is against me.” Matthew 12:30 (NKJV)
