Purified

heat%20registerLast Sunday I ate and drank the elements of communion and returned to my seat. Looking down at the floor in front of my feet I noticed the register where the air circulates through the heating and air conditioning system of the church. The register has a filter to keep impurities out of the system. The filter had done its job. I could see bits and pieces of dirt and particles that had been stopped in their tracks.

I know, I know. That doesn’t sound very spiritual. I should have been more focused on Jesus at that point. However, I did use this moment to consider how the blood of Jesus takes the impurities of sin out of our lives. Therefore, a mundane distraction was transformed into a thoughtful act of worship.

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”—1 John 1:9.
