Spiritual Transformation

 

     I knew a man in Seattle who bought old, run down houses and then remodeled them, transforming them into beautiful, livable homes. Then he would live in them while he remodeled another home, sell the first at a profit, and start over. In order to do this, he often had to tear out walls to redo the old plumbing and electrical work that was antiquated before he would start remodeling the things you can see. He told me he learned this lesson the hard way.

     The first house he bought and remodeled had beautiful old woodwork that had been covered and painted. He couldn't wait to bring this back to its original beauty, so he started right in on the cosmetic work. The problems came after he had finished all his work and moved in, then he discovered the plumbing problems and basically had to demolish most of the work he had done to fix problems beneath the surface. His youthful exuberance turned into a great learning experience.

     This is a great lesson for our spiritual development. We often make many changes to our outward appearance and actions, but these changes will be temporary unless we do some structural work as well. We need to allow God to work on our hearts, our souls and our minds so our external changes will be more solid. These deeper changes work in combination with external practices. Daily scripture reading, frequent prayer time, meditating on God's word are external practices with internal consequences.

     So how's your spiritual remodeling going?

 

Think about it.
