Filled With Something Sweet

October 7, 2010 Donna New

Sometimes I feel small. I sin and feel guilty. I get a traffic ticket and cry. There are so many pitfalls in this life that aren’t easy to avoid. And then there’s comparing myself with others (which we’re not supposed to do) that can cause me to worry if I’m good enough.

I love Scripture because it has an answer for all we need. This verse remains one of my favorites. Since you have been born again – not of perishable seed but of imperishable – through the living and enduring word of God. 1 Peter 1:23 Within those of us who know Him is something sweet. It’s a little bit of heaven, a little chocolate truffle we are.

No matter how I feel or what I’ve done there is imperishable within me. There is eternal, there is heaven, there is Jesus. And it’s a promise of paradise one day, where there will be no more tears, no more pain.

When I got my ticket it was for causing an accident. It was the second ticket I had ever received and I was 40 and the first accident that was my fault. I come from a family where no one gets tickets. They all drive perfectly. And I have 3 brothers, 1 sister and my mom and dad. Only my little brother and I get the tickets. We’re the black sheep of the family. So with this ticket and accident come a lot of guilt and embarrassment. The next Sunday I was sitting in church listening to 1 Peter being taught and the light went on! I’m of heaven! Even though I got this ticket I still have heaven in me and no matter what I do I am imperishable not just by time, forever, but by quality, purity and sweetness. I have Jesus remaining in me! So I say I’m a chocolate truffle with Jesus’ sweetness on the inside even though I may not be so perfect on the outside.
