Do you know what INSIPID means? It’s an interesting word, but one that (I admit) I didn’t know the meaning, until recently. I fancy myself is a “small-time-word-smith,” which by definition means that “I know just enough to be dangerous.” INSIPID: tasteless, bland, unimaginative, uninspiring, uninteresting, wishy-washy, (look it up for more detail). W-O-W… that is one word that I don’t want used to describe me.
At age 75…. I’m just now learning what INSIPID means. This will go to prove, that it’s NEVER too late to learn. And, if you reading this message, you may want to ask yourself….WHY? The fact is… I cannot think of anytime that I’ve ever even heard the word…INSIPID… used. Maybe it’s a trick word.
Some may think that I am a bit INSIPID. That would not be very complimentary…. But, I can say this with AUTHORITY. God is not INSIPID… and He doesn’t think that I am, and He doesn’t think that anyone else is. Because… He made us in His Image. Genesis 1:27 – God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. God blessed them. So, I know God would not have made me INSIPID, because I KNOW that He is not like that.
This is what God “is like.” Isaiah 41:10 – Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. John 3:16 – “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 14:6– Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Please, if you NEVER read another word that I write; REMEMBER this: God loves us; He uses us as an INSTRUMENT of PEACE; He uses us as a CONDUIT of His LOVE. He does this because we (you and me) are SPECIAL. It is His will, that with every passing day…we become “more like Him.” He only asks that we Love Him in return; that we CONFESS our sins, and that we REPENT; so that we might be RIGHTEOUS, as He is. …Blessings…cjlb…3/05/15.
