After an outstanding welcome message from Psalm 40 by Sister Michelle, Pastor Ray discusses stonewalling–delaying or blocking a request, process, or person by refusing to answer questions, by giving evasive replies, or by a refusal to submit to Jesus (resulting in no outpouring of love). This is the final sign that you’re about to turn away from Jesus. On the other hand, the first sign of not stonewalling Jesus begins with going beyond socially acceptable bounds, like Mary of Magdala who washed Jesus’ feet with her hair and tears. A person who sees his/her true spiritual condition, and is subsequently saved from all this sin by Jesus, will sell out to follow Jesus and sacrificially support the work of the Gospel.
Is this your present experience? Has it been your experience in the past, but you’ve gotten angry because your expectations haven’t been met–or some other reason–and now you’ve decided to stonewall Jesus?
