Last Sunday in Sunday school a young man explained how he believes that most people keep God in a box and only open that box on Sunday for an hour or two and then put Him back inside and stick it away until next Sunday.
What are your thoughts?
Is today the day that you let God out of the box?
Do we compartmentalize our faith? Is it a separate part of the rest of your life?
Can God truly be living in you then?
Can you say that you abide (live with) Him then?
Boxes are for old clothes and stuff we no longer want.
Scripture tells us to clothe ourselves with Christ, or Put on Christ. In other words, wrap ourselves with Him. Know that we are empty shells without Him.
Put the boxes away, but leave God out. Wrap yourself in Him.
For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. (Galatians 3:27 NASB)
But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts. (Romans 13:14 NASB)
God doesn't belong in a box! He is not just a mere part of your life. HE IS LIFE!
