We have a timetable. God has a plan. We find ourselves listening to our own counsel more often than the will of God. God has given us a Neutral Zone because we are not Holy enough to come face to face with God. He has given us a Neutral Zone because we will not, we cannot, behave. He has given us the laws so that we can understand that there is no way to be holy other than to accept His offer of Grace through the blood sacrificed on the Cross. God has given us the Neutral Zone so that we have time to mellow before we make an un-redemptive mistake. It is God’s love that brings us redemption. The hardest part of the Neutral Zone is acceptance.
