Remember all that beautiful, white, CLEAN snow we had Monday morning? Well, the temperature came up, we had a little bit of rain, and this morning we have ugly, dirty, muddy, slush in our yard and driveway! Quite a different scene as I look out my front door today! It didn't take long for the picture to change. Less than twenty-four hours!
I could not help but think that sometimes my life is like that. Maybe you can relate? I go to a revival meeting or a Bible study and get convicted about some sin in my life and then repent and get right with God. Clean. White. Joyful. Then perhaps in less than twenty-four hours someone has insulted me and made me mad. Or some sin has crept back in my life. And there you have it. Ugly, dirty, slushy sin right back in my heart keeping me from being all I could be for God. Don't misunderstand me. I know that once I have been saved my soul is white as snow in God's eyes! But my daily fellowship with Him depends on how I obey Him. I can mess up our fellowship with my sin.
So what's the solution? For the dirty, muddy slush in my front yard....a few days of warmer temperatures and a lot of sunshine will do the trick! For my heart? Getting in the Word and letting the SON shine in should do it!
"That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word." Ephesians 5: 26
I hope God is blessing you mightily today!
