Once you go black – – you never go back …

crossesThese are lyrics from a song called Black Sheep by Gin Wigmore – a girl from New Zealand. She recorded it in 2011 – so I guess its an old song by todays standards. Basically – this woman is considered a ‘Black Sheep’ because she has a potty mouth, she drinks and when pushed to the limit she just might kick your butt. Those of you who know me know that I listen to all kinds of music – and I really like the song MUSICALLY – but she is basically saying that once you get a taste of the dark side – you never go back to the other side.
I love the song – but don’t agree at all with the lyrics. As a believer – I know, that I can fall – that I can even be used by Satan in a pawn in some plan of His – but at the end of the day – when I falter – Jesus NEVER fails!
I am glad to testify that when forced into a corner where I have to make a choice to revert to my old sinful, vindictive self – I can choose to allow the Holy Spirit to reign supreme.

So let me encourage you – if you’ve “gone black” – come on back over to the light side. God is waiting for you. According to His word He will not only forgive you – but He will cleanse you from ALL unrighteousness!

You indeed might be what people call a “Black Sheep” but I am a witness that the blood of the Lamb of God – will wash you as white as snow. Can I get a Hallelujah!

You might have given in to temptation – but don’t lose heart! Your day of salvation is today. Accept Him. Believe Him. Confess Him. Receive Him. You may have gone black — but that’s not the end of the story!

  1. Thank God for forgiveness of sin and for the cleansing power of His blood. The only sin that God won’t forgive is the one that He is not asked to forgive! Jan, you are so right! We have all, at some time, participated in some form of “blackness”; but, once, delivered, be determined…persuaded in your own heart…you will NEVER go back! Hallelujah! Good message.
