The need to have a strong foundation in your faith in pertinent to your success throughout this life. Especially today with som many temptations in front of us at all times. Recently I contacted a roofing company in Nashville, TN to have a roof inspection done on my house. After a storm came through, a slow leak started dripping from my roof. This small roof leak over time would have ultimately brought down my entire house if not diagnosed and repaired in a timely manner. That is analogous to our lifestyle today in this modern world of temptations, which can be seen as leaks in the roof over our faith.
There is only so much one can do to shield themselves from the onslaught of social media, TV media, etc. However, there is a great opportunity here to strength our house, our faith, and our religion of communion with God. This roofing company which inspected the roof leak decided that the storm ripped back one of the shingles enough to let a stream of water in when it rains. Below the shingles are more layers of roofing in which was not sealed properly. Water is an interesting thing, as it will find the lowest point to either sit in or continue flowing. Luckily the roofing under the shingles was not sealed correctly letting the water flow through into my house so I could be aware of the leak, otherwise, it would have pooled up creating a large amount of water within my roofing, which would have caused much more damage to my property.
There is a great lesson to be learned here. What do you see as leaking in your faith with God? Has a storm come through your life, pulling back some the material that holds your faith together? If so, are you willing to take notice of this leak and repair the damages that have been done in order to save your faith? I hope the answer is yes. Otherwise, just like the Nashville roofing company who inspected my house said, the damages would have been much greater in the long run if not assessed immediately. Had I not called the company to start the process, I would not have repaired the leak. Who do you need to call to repair the leaks in your faith? Possibly your pastor, maybe your mother or father? Whoever it may be, you need to go ahead and reach out to them immediately. Start the process today. You owe it not only to yourself but also to Jesus Christ as he died for your sins on the cross.
I hope you have learned something today about faith is the foundation of your communion with God. If you have any questions or would like to reach out to me, you can contact me here. Reach out to your local ministry today, heal yourself and your faith before it is too late.
