Dirty Ol’ You

Do you realize you have been chosen? God has chosen you. He picked you. Let me ask you something. Would you have picked yourself? You probably wouldn’t have, because you know who you truly are.

You know who you are in the dark. You know who you are when you aren’t around other church people. You know what you did last night. You know what dirt still remains in your life needing to be cleaned out.

Yet God still chose dirty ol’ you. Isn’t that wondrous! I know it’s unbelievable because He chose dirty ol’ me also. He has changed my name. He has changed your name. He has given us as Christ followers a new identity.

It’s been said that confession is good for the soul, so hold onto your hat. I have a confession today. Ready? My garage is a disaster.

My wife is in charge of the house. The house is fine. However, if you go to my garage and open the door, you want believe the junk I have allowed to amass.

When I go out there, I say to myself, “This was not intended to be like this, and I’m going to change it.” I’ve yet to get around to cleaning up what needs to be cleaned up. However, the good news is I’m confessing, so hopefully within a few weeks I’m going to get out there and make it happen.

What about you? What about your soul? What about the garage of your soul? What about your life this morning? What about the garage of your heart, your soul, your mind, your strength? Is there any cleaning that needs to be done?

In the proverbial garage of my soul, some things need to be cleaned up from time to time. I’m not waiting another day to start the clean up.

What about your garage?
