My eye contacts need a nightly time in a cleaning solution to remove the build-up of protein and other unwanted agents that hinder CLARITY.
Personal SIN, influence from a Godless society & Satan with his followers causes a "build-up" of sorts on the Christian's character. It hinders our CLARITY as to what our godly purpose for the day is. Our "vision" is clouded with hindrances, doubt, misdirection, envy, jealousy, and a sundry of other negatives. Our outward vision for a lost & separated from God, world is significantly dimmed.
We are somewhat handicapped from understanding the still small voice of the Holy Spirit that resides in our mind as a born again Christian.
Just like the soft contact in my eye needs a daily "bath" in cleaning solution, so does each Christian. We need to have a daily time with our loving Heavenly Father.
Just as WHERE I put my contact to clean is important, the PLACE I put myself for spiritual cleaning is also important:
- Jesus mentioned the importance of a secret prayer closet.
- Jesus instituted the local church where weekly spiritual maintenance can take place.
To neglect the proper care of my eye contact results in DISCOMFORT, BLURRED VISION & DIMINISHED PERFORMANCE. While I have the capacity to have 20/20 vision in an otherwise weak eye, without proper care & maintenance I lessen my productivity. I squander my potential, and I miss out on once in a lifetime pictures that are steadily passing me by.
DON'T MISS OUT on the wonders and beauties of the Christian life God has designed for you.
DON'T GO THROUGH your spiritual life, that was bought and paid for by the sinless blood of Jesus God's only Son, with poor spiritual vision.
DON'T LET the trouble of scheduling regular/daily/intentional & weekly times with God force you into a sub-standard Christian
