Sheepside Switch

As the church is gathered by the Lord, a winnowing occurs. The Lord said to let the wheat and chaff grow side by side until He separates them. But then the wheat is gathered, bringing in the sheaves, and the chaff is burned in the unquenchable fire.
         At the end of the age, the Lord will also separate the sheep from the goats. The sheep on His right and the goats on His left. At that point it will be too late to switch sides and the goats will go away into eternal punishment. But right now it is not too late to make a sheepside switch.
Don’t like being a goat? Don’t like the prospects of unquenchable fire and eternal punishment? Me either. Then switch sides.

Maybe this seems too dramatic to you? After all, are we not the gathered people of God? Yes, we are, and, therefore, we should be clothed like His little lambs. Put off the old man, forsake your stubborn, head-butting goatedness, and put on Christ. You do this simply through repentance of sins and turning to Jesus like little sheep. The sheepside is the Lord’s side. So, come to Him.
