Wide Sweep Broom

Wide Sweep Broom
Just before I started this job I had to clean out our garage so that we could store some of our stuff out there. It was a big messy job. 
My husband gave me a big, wide broom to make quick work of this nasty job. And boy, did it sweep fast. It was just the ticket for sweeping that floor.
However it did not get into the corners, it was not good for cleaning the cobwebs from the rafters, and it sure wasn't good for cleaning the light fixtures or windows.
So even though it seemed like the perfect tool, I still needed others to get into the details of the cleaning.

It's the same way with a lot of things in life. People try to use a wide sweep broom to handle everything. And it doesn't always work.

Regarding salvation people use,
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16 ESV)
They think that this will cover them completely. They believe in Jesus, therefore they must be saved. But that broad statement is not all that is needed. 
God's word says this:
Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.” (John 14:21 ESV)
The Bible is full of instruction; And there is a lot of detail. You need to be a student of The Word. 
Save the picture attachment below to your phone, tablet or computer. Learn this information. Commit it to your memory. Understand why we believe ALL this to be true. And most importantly, share it with others.
Do not use a wide sweep broom for salvation. Otherwise it might only look clean, but not really be clean.
