DRILL IT OUT
Recently I had to go to the dentist to get my last cavity filled and I was not excited for the two hours of sitting with my mouth open and to listen to a drill squealing as it cut out my decay. Decay destroys your tooth and your health and NEEDS to be DRILLED OUT! I really tried to not go to the dentist for months but finally decided I had better give attention and just make the appointment and KEEP IT! This would be two hours of complete attention on getting this decay out. Now many times we try to tell ourselves that nobody really sees this cavity nor does it seem to be bad until it TOTALLY TAKES OVER and there is extreme pain and swelling and fever and chills in your body and you HAVE TO DO SOMETHING !!
It's the same with sin. We believe that it really isn't that bad and nobody really sees it until it TOTALLY TAKES OVER and it needs your complete attention to DRILL it out. Fortunately,Christ has done all the work and we are cleansed of all our sin and the Holy Spirit gives us the power to "drill out" the sin that overtakes our flesh. We need HIS power and the "drill" tool of the Word of God to continue to brush and floss our lives so as to keep us free from the temptation that eventually could turn into sin!
So ladies KEEP your teeth AND your HEART (LIVES) clean so your are healthy both physically and spiritually!
If you keep yourself pure, you will be a special utensil for honorable use. Your life will be clean, and you will be ready for the Master to use you for every good work. 2 Timothy 2:21 NLT
