In a dark path, the two brothers Stephan and Marc started their walk talking with each other when suddenly a speeding car passed beside them and splashed them with mud. With a nice smile Stephan said to his brother, “It’s just a sprinkle, we’ve to take care if another car passed.”
When they got closer to light, Marc said, “It isn’t a sprinkle as you thought Stephan.”
“We’ll wash our clothes when we get home Marc.”
But when Marc saw his clothes closely he said, “We can’t go to visit our friend George with these dirty clothes. We’ve to get home and get clean clothes before we visit our friend.”
As long as we are in this world, the dirt of the world is going to soil our bodies. If we stay in the darkness we think it is just a sprinkle but when we get closer to our Christ (The Light) we realize that an action should be taken.
We have to get back to our repentance and confession, to put on the new man’s work which is offered to us by the Holy Spirit. Then, we can reach our heavenly home.
Many a time, I drink sin like water.
Many a time my life was soiled by sin.
Let Your light shine upon me, my Savior.
Lighten my inner man in order to be ashamed of myself.
I go back to Your church to find You the holy one purifying my inner being.
I confess to You my sin and unholy life.
I enjoy Your fiery Spirit’s work in me, which pours Your glory upon me.
