Yesterday, I spent most of my morning cleaning and sweeping up construction debris in the main house. The dust was incredible. Now that we finally installed our last exterior door, our house is sealed. It has been trying at times because we had to destroy and rebuild the house the way we wanted. Now, the pieces are being put back together, and we can almost see what the finished product will look like. Though I’m happy where I am now, I can see something better on the horizon, and the closer it gets, the more excited I get.
Refurbishing the old house is similar to our lives as Christ-followers; our interior must be torn down and gutted so God can rebuild us the way he wants us. When we start to see what He intended, we get excited about our new lives taking shape because our future looks so much brighter. The process is not physical, but our bodies can benefit from renewing our minds because of the peace we get from no longer serving the world, allowing us to relax in our heritage as children of God.
So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God. Galatians 4:7
