Clogged Pipes

He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy.
Proverbs 28:13

Don’t you just hate it when a pipe gets clogged in your home? Clogged pipes demand our immediate attention.

Let’s think for a moment about our spiritual pipe line. When we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we have immediate access to our Heavenly Father.  Just picture a pipe going directly from God to you. When Christians allow sin to stay in their lives, their direct access to God becomes clogged. Sin interrupts our fellowship with God. We miss out on the joy and many blessings He has for us.
Sin is serious—so serious that it sent Jesus Christ to the cross. We don’t want to think of ourselves as sinners. It is human nature to hide our sins and overlook our mistakes. But, we are guilty. Just think of  things like not spending time with God, jealousy, anger, holding grudges, gossiping, cheating, lying, to name a few. We don’t like to admit our wrongdoings, but we must.

Why not take some time right now and imagine yourself standing on the ground looking up into the heavens. Picture that direct line you have to God. Remember your rebellion and disobedience towards God. This disobedience and rebellion clog the pipe between God and you—just like a clogged pipe in your home.
For those of you who do not know Jesus as your personal Savior, you can gain access to God by turning from your sins and seeking His forgiveness. God’s forgiveness is the complete blotting out of all dirt and degradation of our past, present, and future. It gives us a direct access to our Heavenly Father.

Father, Thank You for allowing me to lay my sins at the foot of the Cross. Lord, help me to be aware of the wrongdoings in my life and be willing to confess them to You.  Thank You for Your forgiveness.
