Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! (2 5:17 NIV)
It is demo time at work. I love doing demo. It is mindless destruction that you can use to take out some pent up aggression and angst. It is fun…hard work at times, but fun.
While I was tearing stuff up though, I got to thinking, this is a lot like what Christ does to us. When doing demo at work, the old junk has to be torn out before new equipment can be put in. That is the same thing Christ does for us when he comes Into our lives. He rips and tears out all the old junk to make room for the new.
People think that before they can start a relationship with Christ that they have to change things about themselves first, but that is not the case. He accepts us just as we are, no matter how bad or unworthy we think we are. Then, that is when he goes to work and tears out the old habits, the old way of thinking, and the old way of doing things so there is room for the new. I think it is time to let him use the sledgehammer.
Just keep livin’
