Daily Nugget

Monday, December 19th, 2011.

Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.

During a tour of a large manufacturing plant, a visitor noticed a man using a fiery torch of high intensity to work on huge slabs of steel. Operating from a blueprint on a nearby table, a pointer traced the pattern, and then by a clever system of levers, enlarged the design as it was burned into the metal. There were times, however, when the flame would not make any impression. When this happened, a chemical substance was applied to the resisting patch, and immediately the cutting could be resumed. The worker explained that although the torch was able to go through clean steel 8 inches thick, if it encountered the slightest film of rust on the surface, the flame would not penetrate it. The Bible-believing visitor remarked, “It struck me forcefully that this is a picture of the Christian. The Holy Spirit is seeking to produce in us God’s perfect design. If the life is unblemished, He is able to continue His efforts, but if we become carnal or backslidden, His work of shaping us is hindered until the area in question has been thoroughly cleansed.”

In 1 John 1:9 we are told,
“If we confess our sin God is faithful and just to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
"God, cleanse me that I might be that useable vessel for You.

Bro. Bill

God is Love! Let us reflect that love.
