This past weekend I decided to clean some of our fence, as we started to notice a bit of rust showing. So we needed to sand down the particular areas and then paint the Anti-rust onto the fence. What shocked me was how the original paint covered up some of the rust. If we hadn't spotted it now, the fence would have become a lot worse - and quickly.
Here was my thought: Is this how our spiritual lives have become? Rusted underneath, but covered with a little paint. If we don't pay attention to the Godly areas in our lives, then soon things will begin to fall apart. Sure the outside veneer may give others a false impression for a while, but soon the 'rust' will give us away.
Isn't it time, you did a little anti-rusting of your own? Ask God to help you in this.
