Well…we’ve all been up since the crack of dawn this morning, even though it is Saturday 😦
We got an email yesterday evening stating that the land lord had ordered a Home Inspection for today at 11 a.m.
Now, understand…our house is not magazine perfect…after all, we LIVE in it and as anyone with children and pets knows…your home is not picture perfect! But, we do hold with the old saying, cleanliness is next to Godliness! So, it is cleaner than some homes I’ve seen.
Although the home inspection is solely for checking the electrical, the plumbing, the drywall, the roof, heater, installation, and most of all,the structure…my husband thought we should “clean up a bit” as well.
To all of you who know my husband Mike well, you already realize that he could be the next poster boy for MR CLEAN! LOL! But seriously, he was right. Even though the inspection is not to see how clean the renters are, I’m sure the land lord will ask the inspector about the condition of the inside and about the housekeeping skills of his renters.
The same holds true of our Land Lord! If we are Believers, we need to be ready for an “inspection” at any moment! Our Land Lord is God Almighty, along with His Son, Jesus Christ. The Inspector is the Holy Spirit. Take a look below at the following passages….
This passage talks about, “The Land Lord”…. Look at Matthew 24:46-46 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing…(taking care of things.) Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. (parenthesis, mine.)
This passage talks about “The Inspector”…. John 14:26 says, But the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will help you remember everything that I have told you.
We all need a daily “clean up”…in the physical, and in the Spiritual. So…when the “Inspector” comes and shows you some dirty corners in your heart, allow Him to help you get rid of those things, and get your Spiritual house in order; for no man knows the day nor the hour when Jesus, our Land Lord will come and take us home.
I want the “Inspector” to give a good report to my “Land Lord”! How about you?
