All you need to fix it is...

Everyone knows there are two essential elements to any tool collection: Duct Tape and WD-40. If you need more than that to fix it, you cannot fix it. Call your buddies.  Well, okay maybe it is not that bad, but at least you run all your home repair projects through the duct tape, WD-40 litmus test. They are your base.

We talk a lot around here about continually becoming new. God, we say, is always calling us to a stronger sense of being God's people. That often means talking about things we are not comfortable with, or being willing to change our minds about things. There is so much about us that needs to be made new.  Yet, there are also elements of our faith that we will not let go of, and for good reason. You might say these are the duct tape and WD-40 of who you are as a disciple of Christ.

What are your WD-40 thoughts about God? Maybe you have a particular part of scripture that is most important to you. For some people everything has to be based on love, for others it is mercy or forgiveness.

My base scriptures are Proverbs 3:5-6; Romans 8:28 and Revelation 22:17-21. Of course, I am sure I do not have to remind about the greatest verse of the Bible: John 1:6. So, what about you?

P.S. Speaking of favorite Bible verses, do you remember this?
