Every day we unwrap things. Every day we put the wrappers into the trash can lined with a trash bag.
We empty boxes that come by UPS or USPS, or whatever transport company delivers to your door; things that are packaged in such a way to protect what we have ordered on-line or by phone.
Packaging engineers design the means to protect and contain the products we order to prevent damage. Yet we still throw away the work of the packaging engineer because it just gets in the way.
When we are born, we are packaged in a brand new container, expertly protected by God, the Engineer of your life expertly packaged and delivered with a body, a mind and a spirit.
No one can create or design such a life-filled creation that has been crafted into His own likeness, into His own image.
That creation has a source of life that cannot be duplicated because: the LIFE is in the BLOOD. If your blood is drained from your body, you lose your life.
The blood fills your body and carries all the nutrients that are necessary for your health. It carries also the oxygen necessary to maintain the life that is in the blood.
If your brain does not get the oxygen, you will have a stoke that will cause part of your brain to die. A blood clot will strangle a part of the brain that needs the blood flowing to maintain life in all parts of your brain as well as the rest of your body
The blood removes waste materials from the cells in your body by carrying the waste materials through the filters in you body, like the liver, kidneys and gall bladder. These in turn empty your waste products through the urine discharged by the kidneys and by the colon.
When we throw our trash out we put it into the trash tote on wheels or into the garbage can to have it taken away. We all have trash that does not need to build up by neglect, yet we still tend to neglect ourselves.
The LORD wants to take away those things we have allowed to build up. When you give over to Him the things that don’t belong any more, He will take the trash out to the road… at the Cross.
Those things that don’t belong are only trash now. Take it now to the Cross. This is where the blood will carry away all those things that have caused the best parts of your life to become nothing but waste.
If you don’t know Jesus as you Lord and Savior ask Him to come in to your life today. He is faithful to come into your life and give you a new heart.
Pray a very simple prayer that goes like this;
“LORD Jesus, I confess that I have sinned and I ask for Your forgiveness.
Please come into my life and be my LORD and Savior.
I confess with my mouth and believe in my heart that You are LORD to the Glory of God the Father.
Thank You Father for forgiving me because of the sacrifice Jesus gave on the Cross of Calvary.
I thank You now that I am now saved by His Blood.
In the Name of Jesus Christ I pray.
If you believe this prayer, you just became born again. You are now saved, cleansed, and delivered from all unrighteousness.
“Come unto Me all who are weary, and I will give you rest. Come and learn of Me for I am meek and lowly in hear, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and My burden is light,” Matthew 11:28-30.
