Toss To The Curb

IMG_4509

One of my favorite things is to purge my house of any unnecessary things. Clutter really does take over if we let it. We have all heard that the more we have, the more we must maintain. I do not want to be tied down to my possessions. I love a clean house, but I do not like being a slave to my things. It is much easier to clean when there is less to keep up with. I have a friend who has made a business of helping others purge and organize their homes. God does this in our lives. He helps us to identify and remove each sin that has taken up residency in our lives. I am on a mission to permanently remove everything that does not promote holiness. Anything that does not look like Jesus must go. Let’s envision the neighborhood bulky item pick up and toss to the curb anger, bitterness, jealousy, worry, fear, complaining. We have no use for them anymore. If it keeps others from seeing Jesus in you, get rid of it. Ephesians 4:22 “throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception “. Verse 24 tells us to replace those sins with His new nature which looks like Christ. Colossians 3:5 says to “put to death all sins”. Not pack them away for later, just in case you might need them again someday. No! Those old jeans do not fit you anymore. Why are you hanging onto them? Toss them to the curb. 1 Peter 1:14-16 shows us the new way we are to live. Go read this! Be holy because He is holy. Really, is there any other way for us to live our lives in ways that are pleasing to Him? Join me in pursuing holiness 💕
