Cobwebs




Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming.Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. Ephesians 4:14-15

Most people don't like cobwebs because they are an indication some sort of spider lingers not too far away. I live out in the country and have lots of spiders and have to keep the cobwebs taken down from my garage so the little critters don't sneak into the house and send me into a fright. If you walk into a cobweb they stick all over you. If a fly goes into one he is stuck.

Cobwebs of sorts can be in our spiritual life if you don't take care to keep them down. By this I mean if your Bible just sits there on a table like a ornament or decoration rarely even picked up, what good is that? You may not know how to read it is the excuse I often hear. Satan loves excuses like that because the more he can keep you away from God's word, the more he can influence you with wrong thoughts, fear, anxiety, and a host of other conditions.

Being a Christian is more than a country club membership in a particular church. It is more than being dedicated as a baby. It is more than baptism either as an infant or as a believer. It is more than being 'religious' as often religion kills and Jesus restores. Where are you today? Do you need to take down some spiritual cobwebs??

 PRAYER: Many days so many other things crowd my day and I neglect you and for that I am ashamed and say forgive me. I know how important it is to read the word daily and keep armed and ready for battles I might encounter out in the world. Block anything that takes me away from you Lord. In Jesus' name. Amen.
