Word of the Day:Avoid Rusting Out

In the 1950s a brand new car was buried in a concrete vault. In the early 2000 the car was unearthed and interestingly enough water had seeped through the vault and therefore, the once shiny car had rusted to the point whereby it was unrecognizable. A mechanic was hired to start the car but it was pronounced as ‘hopeless’ as it could not start hence was not useable.

Spiritual inactivity corrodes the soul like moisture or water acting on metal. As highlighted in the verse above, Paul advises Timothy to pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love and patience. In fact, this command has no expiry date attached to it. We therefore need to constantly pay key attention to spiritual disciplines. If we start lagging behind in our spiritual disciplines we need to remember that rust is right behind.

The brain works with the greatest intensity when it works continuously so the more you do, the more you can do. We must work hard to keep in step with the precepts of God by cleaning off the rust and being bright and shiny because of constant practice of the spiritual disciplines. Our capabilities may vary with age, but pursuing the righteous life to which God has called us should never end. Always remember that Spiritual inactivity corrodes the soul.


“But you man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness.”
1st Timothy 6:11
