Broken Down Vehicle?

Published October 10, 2014 by birdieklh

broken-down-car For most of us a broken down vehicle would be disastrous.

Too quickly we jump in our vehicle and drive to a store, a friend’s house, a child’s game, church, or even just to “get out of the house for a while”. If we only have one vehicle, we’re stuck . . . literally. Well, unless you are well enough off to call a tow truck, pay for parts and repairs . . . but I am quite sure most of us would be scratching our heads, pulling out our hair, dreading taking the public transportation, and mumbling, grumbling and complaining.

This morning hubby and I were helping some neighbors trying to figure out their own car woes . . . oil, water (both needed and supplied), funnel to apply said needs . . . let them know about a very reasonable mechanic . . . all good . . . except . . .  for . . . the air filter hose which not only became disconnected but completely shredded at the main connect place . . . sure don’t want to be in their shoes.


Anyway, I’m rambling . . . but, then again, I am good at it LOL 😮

The whole situation got me to thinking about our lives . . . we are vessels (vehicles) created by God for God . . . are we maintaining ourselves, spiritually speaking?

Are we keeping the fresh water (coolant) of the Word flowing into our hearts and minds?

Are we allowing Holy Spirit to do maintenance tune-ups on all the nasty stuff we may still have under our hoods?

Do we keep fresh oil at all times through worship and praise? Remember, it is when we are in the presence of our King in worship that His anointing flows freely into our beings. If we keep on trying to go forward on old rotten, dark (spoiled, if you will), gritty oil from a conference we went to a while back, we can truly blow our engine . . . just like on a vehicle that tries to drive ‘dry’ or with old dirty oil, we can ‘blow the head gasket’ . . . are you getting the picture?

We think, mostly, to take care of our bodies; our vehicles; our children; the tasks at our place of employment; our homes, but spiritually speaking we often neglect the upkeep drastically! We need to repent and change that . . . our spirit life IS our life! We are spirit, have a soul and live in a body. Why are we neglecting the most important part of who we are?!

Just something to think about today.
