We are in the season of nominating those who will represent different parties in the coming elections. Campaigns have been done and now is the time to separate the wheat from the chaff. Picture this: an area with two candidates having an ordinary citizen approaching the station, picking the ballot, and ignorantly ticking both boxes!
- This vote holds no water,
- This vote is equated to no vote;
- This vote is out of order,
- This vote is a spoiled vote.
This is what happens every time we mix fear and faith. These two principles belong to opposing kingdoms. They cannot correlate. It’s always either one or the other.
- The former brings death, while the latter, Life!
- The former brings darkness, while the latter, Light!
- The former has no future, while the latter’s Bright!
- The former resembles black, while the latter, White!
Both candidates are campaigning in our lives. Both have shown us their referendum. It’s our responsibility to avidly scrutinize each, and note that there are pros and cons (all pros lie in faith while all cons in fear). Thereafter we will be able to cast an informed vote towards the principle we want to live by. Each principle activates the kingdom behind it and negates the other principle’s kingdom.
‘For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.’ – 2 Timothy 1:7
What therefore is the definition of the word(s) ‘grey/gray?’ This is a mixture of fear and Faith; a mixture of death and Life; a mixture of darkness and Light; a mixture of black and White.
‘For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light.’ – Ephesians 5:8
On a lighter note: Even the word ‘grey/gray’ in itself is yet to decide whether she should be spelled using ‘e’ for fear or ‘a’ for faith. A vote of no confidence goes out from me to her.
