On Sunday, Pastor John talked about wear patterns. It made me think of the smart phone-shaped imprint in the pocket of my favorite jeans, or how I know if I put my slippers on wrong because each foot has cemented its slightly different angle into the fabric.
More importantly, what wear patterns do I have in my life that need healing? What’s my mood pattern when I’m inconvenienced? What’s my reaction pattern when I’m provoked? What’s my blame pattern when I feel guilty? (Ouch, these sting!)
As Pastor John said, Jesus disrupts the wrong thought patterns in our lives. Praise the Lord for that! We all need to reorient our hearts with the truth, because His way is better.
“He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit…” Titus 3:5
Father, thank You that I can renew my spirit daily (or hourly)! Thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus, to die for every sin and therefore continually disrupt the sinful patterns in my life. Keep doing it! Amen.
