The Web. The Beast. The Mark

Good Evening, Readers:


I hope you had a great day today.  I did and I’m glad it was great.  I’m not sure how many of you are frequent surfers of the web like myself but, I’m sure you’ve heard about the viral video about a fight involving a bus driver and a passenger.  This video has been discussed back and forth since it was uploaded, actually to the point of being kind of annoying.  However, that’s not why we’re here, tonight.  I want to talk about the aftermath.  Not the discussions but, the fallout for both parties involved.  See, this thing is on the World Wide Web.  This means that the WORLD will know what happened on that day.  This also means that those people will me forever “marked” in a sense because, well, we can simply go and view it anytime we want.  That being said, their reputations will precede them in the mind of the rest of the world.  It reminds me of Cain after he had killed his brother Abel.  If you haven’t ever heard of this story, I suggest you go to Genesis Chapter 4.  Take a look at verse 15 though:

15And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.

Basically, God is telling Cain that, even though you did a horrible thing, even though that horrible thing was done to your brother and even though you have been told to leave from His presence, God still decided to look out for Cain.  How?  He marked him.  He marked him because, if someone was to find out who he was, he would surely be killed.  This mark, however, had a price.  Not only did it keep Cain from being killed by someone on earth, it also let EVERYONE know who he was because, well, he was marked.  I’m saying all of this to that even though you feel like you’ve been marked by something that has happened in your life, rest assured that God knows as well.  In fact, if you have confessed what you have done to him, the mark doesn’t matter.  Sure it’s there for all the world to see and sometimes, folks will judge you accordingly.  I know from personal experience what this means.  However, I also know that God has forgiven me so, I am still able to hold my head high and feel God’s protection.  He’s got me and he’s got you too


Until next time…
