Today we take Rambo, our Ford Explorer to the mechanic. It’s been running rough so it’s time to have it checked out. One mechanic told me the spark plugs and wires need to be changed. He showed me one wire that had a small hole in it! Now, I’m not a mechanic but I do know when spark plug wires go bad it affects the running of the entire vehicle!
Bad spark plug wires remind me of sin. When we allow sin to come into our lives and camp there it affects us just like a bad spark plug wire affects a car or truck. It not only affects us but it affects those around us and if not dealt with will destroy your relationship with your family, friends and the Lord!
Scripture says this in Matthew 3:1-2, In those days came John the Baptist preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Repent means your going in one direction, your direction, and you decide that’s not the direction you should be going because you’re not walking with the Lord. In other words, you turn from doing what you want to doing what God wants!
