Someone Just Came Into My Apartment

At 1:49 pm today, someone came into my apartment while I was lying here on the floor asleep.  I heard someone put a key in the door and enter the apartment.  It sounded like a man's voice speaking.  He must have seen me because straight away he locked my door and vanished before I could get up to see who it was.  I called my son on his cell phone to ask him if it was him that doubled back around and he said, "no."  So, I called the management office to report it.  This is the second time someone has entered my apartment with a key besides me or my son.  The first time someone did that it was the maintenance man.  Here is that post: A Man Tried to Come Into My Apartment

Rejection by Which One

If someone rejects you for having a baby out of wedlock and they reject you for now being celibate then the only thing left to be is in the middle.  But the middle is lukewarm or compromising.  It is neither hot nor cold.  In fact, here is what Jesus had to say about it as he was speaking to the church of Laodicea in the book of Revelation:

Rev 3:15-18  KJV
I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.  So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.  Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. 

That word spue in the Greek means to vomit.  So, you see if I had a choice as to which one I would accept rejection from it would be that someone or that group of people than for me to be rejected by Jesus Christ, the Son of God.  Said another way, I would rather be rejected by you than to be rejected or vomited out by God.  God does not accept people who are in the middle.
