What Are You Full Of?

Given March 29, 2006
" A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh. Luke 6:45." This verse is pretty clear. What is in your heart, is usually what you're going to be talking about. But, some people are good at saying the right things according to who they're around. You know anybody like that? They cover up what's in their heart pretty good.

I heard this analogy the other day that made it more clear to me. This guy said, "Whatever you're full of is going to spill over when you get bumped." Now, I can see that! If a glass is full and you bump it or shake it, it's going to spill over and everyone around will know it. When we, as Christians, are bumped, jostled, hit, jolted or in some way tested, whatever we're full of is going to dictate the reaction we'll display. If we're full of God, we'll react correctly, we'll be a good witness to those around us and God will be pleased. If we're full of something else, we'll probably embarass ourselves, be a bad witness and have to repent.

Think about it; how do we react when someone doesn't move right away when the light turns green? Or when we hit our toe on the couch leg? Or when someone falsely accuses us or wrongly mistreats us? If we're sloshing junk over on those around us, we need to repent and ask God to empty our dirty vessel, clean it up and refill it to overflowing with Himself. That's what I'm doing!
