A Heart For God: Virus (Heart) Scan

Virus (Heart) Scan

When was the last time you ran a virus scan on your computer?

I don't know about you, but I get lazy. Here's what I mean. I've got so much going on that I keep putting off scanning my computer for viruses for another day. "Well, with Twitter and Facebook and blogging and video blogging and reading others' posts and keeping up with the latest politics and news headlines as well as adding value to the online (and offline) community, I'll just do that tomorrow." Do you ever talk to yourself like that or think it?

And I was considering this same type of scenario as it has to do with our hearts and how we deal with the sin that so easily entangles us. (Hebrews 12:1) You do know that you still sin from time to time as a Christian. Right? You're simply not better than me in that department. No one is. (Romans 3:10)

But we put that off, too. We put off "scanning for viruses / dealing with sin" for another day. We put it off. And we put it off. And we put it off some more. And then what happens is we got all this crud and junk and temporary cache files bogging us down and maybe a malware virus or trojan horse or two. (Those are the real bad ones.) And we're literally hijacked.

Do you ever find yourself less than patient/short with your spouse or kids or burdened with worry more than you ought to be or in bondage to ugly thoughts (why do I keep thinking like that?) or it could be anything else where you're just not living the abundant life Jesus talked about, quite frankly? (John 10:10) I suggest it's because you need a "virus / heart scan."

You'll be surprised how your "system" runs so much better after it. (I think the analogy works.) Who needed to hear this?

"If we confess our sins, He (Christ) is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." (1 John 1:9)

"Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed." (James 5:16)
