Spiritual dumping ground – An illustration

03 Feb

Many of us, at one time or another, have battled with letting go of something or someone that we know would not be pleasing to God. Even though He tells us to cleanse ourselves of all filthiness of the flesh and spirit (2 Cor. 7:1), we find ways to hold on to the “old things” which poison our spirit. In order to be effective ministers and messengers of Christ, we have to get rid of every sin and every weight that so easily beset us (Heb. 12:1). Let Jesus have it and be free. Enjoy this illustration by Onetimeblind Ministries.

    Love the video! We cannot keep going back to the vomit of what God has delivered us from just because we are used to it…or dare I say, we like it? By the power of His Spirit, He will give us the strength to lay those things down in pursuit of new life in Him.

      Amen LDM, going back to it or carrying it with us it’s still a stench that the Lord wants us delivered from. He told us to forget those things which are behind, and for many that is a lot harder than it seems, trust me I know! However, I know that when I struggle Jesus is there to carry the load for me, and for that I am thankful! As always, I appreciate your comments!

    Loved the video. Thanks for sharing this with us. I must confess that there are a couple areas in my life that God had spoken to me to get rid of. Yet just like the video, the comfort of my sin was too familiar and I felt as though I would be letting a part of myself go. A part of me that would make me no longer recognizable to others. I thank God for allowing you to minister to me through this blog. Sometimes as pastors, preachers, teachers, etc., we need to be ministered to, and be humble enough to recognize that God will use whomever he will and however he will.

      Hello Pastor DK!

      From the prospective of a pastor this is a blessing! So many look for pastors and teachers to be infallible, but no man is save Christ. Thank you for keeping it real and letting us all know that there truly are things that we struggle with; it’s satan who wants to keep us shamed and in bondage by not confessing that we have those bags full of rubbish that we are afraid to let go of. God wants us blameless, and His spirit will not dwell in an unclean temple, so we have to cleanse ourselves daily to prove that we are acceptable vessels for His use. I appreciate and am humbled by your kind words. Keep on walking in God’s grace and favor. God bless you sir!
