The Difference

“What is the chaff to the wheat?” Jeremiah 23:28

We are again at a point in history where the chaff seems to have taken over the field.
The abundance of things in their outward appearance seems to have swallowed the true essence.
Wheat is unknown, or perhaps despised...too hard, too small, too unyielding.

When, in the church, callow young people with a certain capacity for music are given the task of leading people to the realms of the Spirit by means of musical extravaganza, is this not Chaff?

When pastors raise their voices to proclaim with the delirium of a dream, that God’s aim is to smother your life with wealth and unceasing happiness, is this not Chaff?

When the Spirit inspired message is replaced with a sterile interpretation of the scripture from men’s thoughts, is this not Chaff?

God says in Jeremiah (2:13) “They have forsaken Me the fountain of living waters.”  
What unutterable tragedy, to have left Life!

Would that our ears could hear God’s invitation, calling us to the fountain of living waters... that place where Life is given freely to all who come...where there springs up an endless renewal of Life eternal.

“Let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.” Rev. 22.17
