Just like using your windshield wipers ones when it’s raining will not keep the rain off for the rest of your drive, we all need to make choices throughout our day.
I was just talking to my kids about how once they make a decision for Christ, they must renew that hope on a day by day, minute by minute basis.
We must choose joy. We must choose gratitude. We must choose to love God and love each other.
These things do not come naturally to us. But they do to God.
When we draw near to Him, He will draw near to us and fill us with His spirit.
So just like we keep our windshield wipers on doing our entire drive when it’s raining, we must be consciously aware to make little choices throughout our day to drive near to God and love others the way He loves us.
We love because He first loved us ~ 1 John 4:19
