This can apply to our spiritual lives as well. We all have baggage which needs to be cleared away in order for a relationship with Jesus to begin. If He is to sit on the throne in our hearts we need to make room for Him. Only then will the construction of a relationship with Him be able to start.
” Since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.” (2 Corinthians 7:1)
There is a lot of junk we need to clear away. This junk could be addictions, lying, greed, hatred, complacency, non-commitment, selfishness. You get the idea.
Look are your heart. Is there room for Jesus to be the only one sitting on the throne or does some debris need to be cleared away to make room for construction to begin?
Fall on your knees before God. Confess to Him what junk is blocking the way. He will provide the bulldozer and work with you to clear the way for Jesus.
