Unclogging the Arteries

by | Jan 16, 2016 | New Life, Righteousness

1 John 1:7 “But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from every sin. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

What, then, about our human nature? If we go to the Lord concerning our human nature, He will expose it in a thorough and detailed way. In particular, we shall realize that we are very rebellious and that we do not know what it means to be submissive to the Lord. The Lord may show you that you were wrong in a particular matter. Then He may go on to show you how you were wrong with a certain brother or a certain sister. Each time you will need to confess. You should thank the Lord that you are under His light, under His exposure. By confessing all that the Lord exposes in our hearts, we unclog the artery of our soul.

The artery of the emotion needs to be unclogged. When we realize how serious the problem we have with our emotion is, we may be deeply sorrowful. We shall realize that in many cases we hate what we should love, and love what we should hate. No wonder our psychological heart does not function normally.

If we take the time necessary to allow God to unclog the arteries of our psychological heart, we shall have the sense that our entire being has become living. Our mind, will, and emotion will all be in a very healthy condition. All the “dirt” in these “ditches” will then be dug away. No one can do this unclogging for you. Thus, you need to go to the Lord day by day and ask Him to expose everything wrong in your mind, will, and emotion. Then in the light of what He exposes, you need to confess.
