Part of our remodeling project on our house includes new pipes. Cast iron was used when the house was built, and after nearly fifty years, they are unreliable. We didn’t want to get the house finished and then have to dig everything up and ruin it, so we decided to be proactive. We had to cut the slab and dig trenches. At the same time, we installed new building materials such as insulation, window sills, and lumber. So, as we tear out the old stuff, it’s necessary to integrate the new materials to maintain the sturdiness of the house.
We are a remodeling project and must renovate the rooms in our heart piece by piece, ripping out the old junk left by years of sin and adding new biblical truths to shore up the integrity of our mind. As you recover from your past sin, make sure you build yourself back in the likeness of Jesus. He has given you a firm foundation, but it’s up to you to recover from your past. It’s also essential that you remember the following verses:
“This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my laws on their hearts, and write them on their minds,” then he adds, “I will remember their sins and their lawless deeds no more.” Hebrews 10:16-17
