Series: Spring Cleaning Lenten Series
March 31, 2019 | Rev. Dr. Catharine Guest
Passage: Matthew 7:24-29
Rev. Dr. Catharine Guest continued her Lenten Series called Spring Cleaning with a message entitled Fixer Upper based on the scriptures 1 Corinthians 3:10-15 and Matthew 7:24-29
Ever try remodeling a house? Seems so easy at first – so exciting – things are going to be so much better in just a couple of days, right? But then you get started and the more you get into it the more complicated things become – you realize it’s about more than just doing pretty House Beautiful accommodations – there are things lurking in those walls…..things needing repairs you never noticed before…..so much to be done before you get to the pretty and fun. Same is true of our lives when we really seek to be transformed for Christ – in an effort to become more like Christ there are a lot of things in need of repair – lots of things lurking in the shadows of our hearts – a fixer upper of the soul isn’t a weekend project!
Lent is a time of spiritual house cleaning. This season of Lent we will be doing just that. When we look within ourselves from the perspective of Christ’s unconditional, sacrificial love for us - where are our hearts, minds, and souls in need of the Spirit’s transformation?
