BEING WITH CHRIST

Jesus says, ‘Whoever is not with me is against me;

and whoever does not gather with me scatters.’

I sometimes feel that my life is like scrubland,

halfway between garden and desert.

I sometimes feel that I live in a world of twilight,

halfway between day and night.

I sometimes feel like lukewarm water, halfway between hot and cold.

I sometimes feel that I am in a state of indifference

halfway between love and hate.

I sometimes feel I am trudging along a safe little path

halfway between good and evil.

Lord, save me from illusion

that because I am not against you, I am therefore for you.

Above all, save me from being neutral.
