Today it is raining. And that is fine by itself. Water is good we need it for plants and crops. But what happens when it is like today. at first there was ice. Now a bunch of water hit the ice. makes for very dangerous situations. I can barely make it to my car. Even though there was salt on the ice. The water melted all the salt away. it was like I never even applied the salt. So as I was sitting here I thought what a great analogy of Matthew 5:13
To have an ice cold relationship with Jesus is not good. and if you add just a tiny bit of water it makes for slippery conditions. Just like the ice which is dangerous to walk on, an ice cold relationship with a little water on top just makes for slippery conditions in your walk with God. you slide back and forth on the ice. Your feet are not planted firmly. they slide back and forth. and slip and we may even fall.
We all need water to survive. Snow by itself is it needed? But when it melts it provides water for the earth. When the Sun comes up the ice will melt. Much like if we sit with God and set our hearts on fire for the Lord, our ice will melt. The sun will sustain us and dry up the ice. I might not of wrote this out the right way but honestly these are my thoughts for the day.
Matthew 24:12. I pray God melt the wax off our cold hearts and set our hearts on Fire for the LORD that reigns from heaven. You can call it rain if you want and you can call the Son, the sun for when you think of it we all need the sun (Son) to live, and what is life with no water? I pray our water is not mixed with ice and if it is I pray God melt the ice off our relationships with God and lead us to good solid dry land that helps us stand upright in Jesus name Amen! hard to stand when you are ice cold and we need more then a little water added to us my friends. our bodies and even earth is mostly made up of water. Seems to be good heat mixed with water and not ice. and salt on ice that gets washed away is not good for anything.
The salt I added to the ice yesterday is gone. You can’t even tell I applied it. It is just slippery outside. Just my thoughts for the day. I pray this messages blesses someone today in Jesus name Amen! Luke warm sounds like a terrible place to be but I think ice cold with a little water can be called luke warm also dear people! Revelation 3:16
