BEARING WITNESS . . . Or, in other words, being mouthy

I have posted watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the Lord, give yourselves no rest, and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth.” (Reference: Isaiah 62:6-7 )

I am not sure, beloved, what to make of verse 7. But verse 6, that one I know.

9 o’clock and all is well, for the Lord is with us”

10 o’clock, take your ease believer, for the Lord draws nigh!”

11 o’clock believer. Sleep with assurance for the Lord watches over you”

It is midnight believer! The Lord never sleeps or slumbers!”

And so on. Bearing witness means that any time, day or night, someone somewhere is testifying to God’s presence and power. The Lord’s blessings upon us are constantly being announced, and the Lord’s attributes are constantly being broadcasted. We do not witness to God in isolation. All believers and all creation testifies to God. All you need to do is speak openly when prompted by the Spirit, and speak in truth and compassion. And what better way to spend the second Sunday of Lent. May you, beloved, do so. Selah!
