Shaun and I are so encouraged by the multitude of people who hear the Lifeonaire message and embrace it. They are hungry to know more and they desire to live their lives for it. It feeds our willingness and desire to share it even more. But the reception we get isn’t always from people who embrace it. There are people who reject it. And there are many who hear it believe it, but are unwilling to pursue it.
There are few who just outright reject the message. They oftentimes can’t even put together a coherent argument as to why, and sometimes just resort to name calling or dismissing us altogether while attempting to get others to do the same. This doesn’t happen too often, but it does happen. Then there are those who hear the message, get very excited about what they hear, but eventually decide to move on from it.
Why? Why would someone listen to something, recognize that there is power in the message and then dismiss it?
The Lifeonaire message reveals truth about life to us. That truth is often a mirror that reflects back to us that the life we are living is a lie. Rather than embrace the message- which is an admission that we’ve been living for a lie- many ignore it or repress it. It’s too much for the recipient of the message to handle. They would rather ignore what they just learned and continue to live their lives on the same path and not rock the boat.
The Lifeonaire message is a threat to the way we think. I, of all people, clearly understand and recognize that we are all individuals and that God has a different plan for each and every one of our lives. But I would suggest that there is a right path and a wrong path for us all to take. If we are on the wrong path and we come face to face with that, first we must admit that we’ve made mistakes, which is difficult for a prideful person to do. And second, we must begin to take the steps to get from the wrong path to the right path. That could involve hardships, something else that is difficult for people to willingly pursue.
It takes courage and boldness to admit that we’ve been living the wrong way. If in fact we have been living the wrong way, it takes even more courage to begin to live differently and go against what everyone else is doing.
It is my hope that all would embrace the Lifeonaire message, and that they would courageously pursue it. Our biggest obstacle is ourselves; when we recognize this and humble ourselves we open up to do GREAT things.
