Flip This House

Posted on September 24, 2008 at 4:07 PM
    I am a sucker for most reality tv shows. I especially enjoy the home remodeling ones like "Flip This House." I have always thought it would be fun to do that on the side. Well...since we have just purchased a new home I am discovering that there is a lot more time and effort that goes into getting a place to look good.

  Suzanne started tear down the wall paper in the dinning room (hoping to have it down and painted by Thanksgiving) which means that I have joined in the effort. If you've ever owned an older home you may have found that the previous owners decided to put up wall paper instead of fixing the cracks that lye underneath. That is the case with our home. Not only that but I think the wallpaper have been on for over 50 years, which has made it doubly hard to remove the paper and the glue.

   Removing the wallpaper and the glue then cleaning the walls priming and painting them is quit a process, much like the Christian's life. At first we think we are just fine. We look good on the outside but underneath there are all kinds of hidden cracks (hurts, pains, trials). When we come to Jesus he starts the renovation process. He doesn't tear the old us down and discard us, He just Flip's This House. Jesus strips away the camouflage,  wipes off the remains of the world and begins to prime us with the milk of His word. As our foundation is built upon he paints us into His perfect will.

We all need to ask the Lord to "Flip This House!" To take this old sinful self and turn it into something beautiful!
