Curb Service

In a parking lot outside a grocery store, the space in front of mine was empty. Instead of having to back out, I could go forward and drive out of the spot like all the professional drivers who back into their spots in the first place. I put the car in drive and hit the gas, but instead of going anywhere, I heard a loud "clunk."

It didn't take long to figure out what had happened. My parking space had one of those curbs they put in parking lots to keep people from doing the very thing I was trying to do. Even though I couldn't see it from my vantage point in the driver's seat, it still was not going to let me go forward, no matter how much I pressed on the gas.

Sometimes in our spiritual lives, we seem to be stuck. No matter what we try, we can't seem to move forward. Often, the problem is unconfessed sin. In this week's message, we will read from 1 John 3:3-10, where John comes to the same conclusion twice: sin is serious business. If we are going to live out our faith, we are going to have to allow Christ to deal with the sin in our lives.

Hope to see you Sunday!
