The Lenten Journey 2015 – Inbox Full?

Fedrick WilsonJohn 3:1-17

I have Yahoo, Gmail, and Facebook accounts with messages inside my inbox. If left unchecked, my inbox can fill up rather quickly with messages from family, friends, preachers, associates, businesses/companies, unknown people, annoying people, etc. Sometimes I do not check messages for days, or sometimes weeks. If you do not check your messages, your inbox can easily fill up with unanswered, important mail; junk mail, or possible internet scams/hoaxes. I missed several good opportunities and blessings because of such carelessness. Also, when I check my inbox, I do not hesitate to use the delete button liberally! With SPAM on the increase, having a Junk mail folder has become an essential element in managing my eLife. It helps me to filter out the unwanted and processing the good.

Are you doing that with your life? Guarding your heart and mind? When was the last time you checked your spiritual inbox? When was the last time your spiritual inbox was full? Was it full of God’s presence or Satan’s mess?

As believers in Christ Jesus, we can recognize good or bad messages in our spiritual inboxes. The Holy Spirit reveals to us Satan’s spam messages and with that knowledge avoids damages. This type of discernment requires a relationship with Jesus. You cannot identify Jesus’ voice correctly unless you know him personally. When you draw near to God, God will draw near to you. If you want to be attentive and responsive to God’s will in your life, turn to God in repentance and consecration. That means checking your spiritual inbox and seeking God’s face for guidance.

Lord, you are the Great Shepherd. Grant us the peace and direction we need this day, In Jesus’ name. Amen
