Remember when you were driving and a fly kept banging his head against the windshield. He saw and felt the sunlight, but he was trapped. The last time this happened to me I said to the fly, “Hey there, you’re never going to get through that thick glass. You’re only hurting yourself. Why are you so stupid?”
What did it take to help that fly? ME! I opened the side window, waved my hand and the fly sailed away, free and into the sunlight.
Sometimes I wonder if I am any different than that fly. I want to see the light in my job or in my family. I want to be free. But like the fly, I don’t have the power. I’m too wrapped up in my old habits, my lifestyle, my sins. Just like that fly, I keep banging my head and going nowhere!
Only Jesus can roll down the window, raise his hand in blessing and set me free.
The world takes me captive…..but Jesus sets me free.
Jesus, you are the Way, the Truth and the Life.
