Those Who Chose To Walk Alone

Words In Season:
The one who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowds. But those who walk alone will most likely find themselves in places no one has ever been before.
Albert Einstein

Bearing:
"Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment:"
✝ Exodus 23:2

Bottomline:
That everybody is doing it does not mean it is right. Because you may have been hearing over and over again the parlance "everybody is doing it"
When I came to Lagos to hussle in 1999, I kept hearing the word each time I raise an eyebrow against any mischief wrong doing "Eko la wà" meaning that "we are in Lagos"
And my answers each time I hear this were "that you are in Lagos is to take licence for liberty for vices and mischief? Is The God of other places different from that of Lagos?"
I never got answers those questions until I relocated out of Lagos to the middle belt in year 2012.
When it comes to the things of God the way of God, majority hardly carry the vote. For instance God said "give" the majority say "keep, just in case of" God said "communicate, distrubute and share" The majority say "hoard and lock up the warehouse and keep the key" God said "flee from every appearance of evil" Lagosians say "aiye ñ sé 'rúè" that is "the world is doing it" You will now agree with me that to be on The Lord's side, you may have to walk alone. But I got good news for you.... For choosing to be on The Lord side, you may not have to walk alone BUT with the minority. The minority of those who will walk in he narrow way. For narrow is the way that leads to life. And broad is the way of the majority that leads unto perdition and destruction.
So you will still have company. Yes, a company among the minorities that follow the way of God! So it won't be a lonely path all the way. Of course the majority will persecute those of you in the minority. But will always have a company to identify with like other disciples in the book of Acts.
"And being let go, they went to their own company, and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said unto them." Acts 4:23.
To enumerate the benefits of being in this minority on The Lord's side is to write an entire library full of books. But the summary of it all is that it pays to be on The Lord's side. It pays to eschew evil and cleave to that which is good. Romans 12:9. Doing so is very rewarding here and hereafter. It keeps and preserve you from evil and prolong your days. Psalm 91: We can go on and on the advantages of this lone walk with the lone minorities on The Lord's side.
You too can make your choice today on the minority side but it will involve you hating evil and loving what is good, loving righteousness and hating wickedness. Come on The Lord's side now by repenting of the wicked and mischievous ways of the majority and believing and embracing Christ. And He will save you, change you, change your ways and change your life.
