Work to Be Done

To Do list.jpg

"For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king." - 1 Samuel 15:23

Their three year old daughter, Elianna, had been driving them crazy. She would scream "no!” to just about everything they would suggest. It could be anything-- No! The other day, they even offered her a piece of candy --- and she said “No”!

So they decided that they were going to take advantage of this season by videotaping her, as they asked her some important questions for her future. “Do you want to drive as soon as you turn sixteen?” “Will you date boys before you're 25?” “Do you want Mommy and Daddy to pay for your wedding?” No! No! No! Ha! ya!

But then, as they were meditating on all of this, they realized that there are areas of rebellion in all of our lives; areas that have to be dealt with. Dealing with our sin and our sinful nature is a life long process. But it's not a process from which we should run away! This process of sanctification draws us closer to each other and most importantly, closer to our Lord!

The Lord is looking for vessels to fill with His power. Let's take a closer look at the ways our hearts rebel against God today. And let's strive to get sanctified, that God's purposes may be accomplished in our lives!

There is so much work to be done! Have a Holy Lent and an amazing Spring. Work hard for Him!

Father justify me today. Take my heart, my mind, my life, it is Yours! And then sanctify me each day of my life that I might let go of the worldly, sinful, chaotic mess of a life I have, and rest in Your peace and love. Amen.
