Washing Machine

A couple months ago my clothes dryer died so I purchased a new washing machine and dryer… the new kind without the agitator.   While reading the operating manuals for instructions and experimenting with a load of laundry, an error message popped up and I had to go to the trouble shoot section to figure out what the problem was and make the recommended adjustments. 
One morning while going through my bible study, I realized that the concept of our relationship with God is metaphorically similar to a washing machine.   I started imagining the following …
Our Operating Manual: The bible which provides instructions on healthy living and healthy relationships for our survival both with fellow human beings and with God.
Laundry:  Us humans who desire to live clean and holy unto our God
Detergent: The Blood of Jesus
Troubleshoot:  The Holy Spirit
Warranty: Jesus death, burial and resurrection

Hallelujah!!! Thank You Jesus.

  6. A supervisor of mine once said that grabbing something in conceptual terms is not possible for everyone. Those who are blessed can pick the best thing out of any messages. Now I think you are one of the blessed ones with some intellectualism. This is why you could match the two different terms easily.

  7. CFA, thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I credit God for His inspired thoughts. When we connect to the Holy Spirit and desire to grow in our relationship with God, He gives us revelations using practical everyday inspirations just like when he told parables using farming terms of the day to bring home a spiritul lesson.
