Thoughts on “Are You Real- Episode 61 – Remodel Your Life with Jon Fuller and Jody Holland” from Mike Sr.
I am in the construction business. I am amazed at the fact that the same principles apply in the rebuilding of people as in a building or structure.
The first phase: which is messy, dusty, dirty and often times exploratory is DEMOLITION. In the process of creating the desired end result, the existing structure has to be invaded.
After this phase, the focus is on the foundation. Ephesians 6 talks about putting on the full armor of God. In verse 6:14, the first and I think the most important aspect of the armor is the “girdle of Truth”. This is referred to as the internal or integral part. This is derived from the word integrity. The unique thing about this piece of armor is it cannot be observed because it is covered up none the less it is the foundation.
With all the high tech devices flooding the market in the way of cell phones, flat screens, computers, automobiles, etc. they are no more effective or efficient as their internal composure. So it must be more so with us. In John 14:6 Jesus says I AM the way, the Truth, and the Life…
John 14:6 – Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
This is where it all starts. The process is for the most part slow and sometimes painful, but the reward has no earthly comparison!
