God's Iron

Post  WARRIOR on Thu 30 Dec 2010, 3:36 pm

Standing here ironing fabric
I think of the process
Of being ironed smooth
God takes us and removes
The spots and wrinkles from us
He will pull us forward
To iron that next section straight ~

When you are done ironing
You hold up the fabric and look
For any spots you may have missed
And you return the fabric
Back to the board for re-ironing ~

God takes us and he removes
All flaws, spots, imperfections
He looks for a beautiful gown
One of beauty and perfection
To cover the body of Christ ~

Know this my friend
We all are being ironed
Having all that is unacceptable
Removed from our lives
It is a process called sanctification
Which leads to holiness and righteousness ~

So the next time you see an iron
Think of what God does for us
To become acceptable to Him.

He Prunes and Cleanses

Yes, He prunes. cleanses and irons an d refine till we reflect His glory

25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, 26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, 27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. 28 So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. 29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church. 30 For we are members of His body,[a] of His flesh and of His bones. 31 “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.”[b] 32 This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church.

Thanks
