God’s Filtration System – June 5, 2017

Today’s Scripture… “Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,”
Hebrews 10:19

Thoughts for Today… It keeps my internet life clean.

Probably almost everyone reading this email today this has either happened to you or someone in your family. While searching for something on the internet, you have innocently landed on a pornographic website while surfing the net. Even my wife Penny can tell you all about this.

Several years ago when we first begin to use the internet we decided that if we were going to use this incredible tool called the “Web” that we were going to establish some safeguards for our family and myself.

We have always used some type of filtering system, but for the last couple of years we have been using a wonderful program from American Family Association called “Bsecure”.

Bsecure filters out inappropriate material and actually BLOCKS the websites that contain material devoted to:  pornography, any kind of nudity, racism, bomb-making, violence, gambling etc….  This wonderful software makes it impossible for anyone using our connection to access these sinful websites.  It makes sure that “bad things” don’t appear on our computer screen.

Like I said, it keeps our internet life clean.

And it reminds me that God doesn’t just want to keep our internet lives clean…

…he wants to keep our “offline” lives clean, as well.

That’s right.  He wants to “filter” out inappropriate materials from our lives.  You see, there is a dark side to every single one of us – it’s called the flesh, or the old nature.  And, quite honestly, we need some safeguards to make sure that “bad things” don’t appear on the computer screen of our hearts.

So, what is God’s “Bsecure” program?  It isn’t some fancy software that you can access online.  Some technical guru out in Silicon Valley didn’t write the programming on this one.  It’s not the hottest selling application in “Computer Shopper” magazine.  Quite simply, God’s filtration system is known to us as …

…the Bible.

God’s Word is what filters out the junk that seems to somehow find its way on to our screens.   It reminds us to purge out those impurities in our lives. Read it consistently, study it, meditate on it and put it into practice in your life, and I PROMISE you…

…it will keep your life clean.

The newspaper won’t do it.  That report on your desk won’t do it.  Your favorite magazine or romance novel won’t either.  Only God’s Word empowers you to BLOCK the inappropriate material.

Why not “download” a copy off of your shelf or coffee table today?

Have a “Wonderful DAY in Christ,”
