As a child I collected sea shells as a hobby, but was disappointed to never find one with anyone home. They were so beautiful in their coloring, shimmering in the sunlight as I washed the sand away. Their beauty, however, was only shell deep and emptiness attested to they now being an artifact, merely giving the illusion of greatness. God says in Isaiah three “the people have fallen because their tongues and their doings are against Him. The look on their faces declares their sin just like Sodom. They don’t hide it. Woe to their soul, for they have brought evil upon themselves.”

Have we been sold a bill of goods by the world, accepting what it pedals, thereby bringing evil upon ourselves? James 4:4 says anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. Are we doing as the world does, watching those same programs that litter our minds and chip away at the moral foundation of God’s Word in us? Are we spending time with those friends who have influenced our behavior instead of the other way around? Is our faith a mirage, looking pretty on the outside, like a sea shell, but inwardly there’s no one home? Isaiah goes on to say “it will be well with the righteous, they shall eat the fruit of their labor. But woe to the wicked, for it shall be ill with them and the reward of their hands will be destruction because they have followed those who’ve lead them astray.”

Could it be that the sickness of our minds, bodies, and spirits have to do with the world’s diet of sin instead of God’s feast of truth? Isaiah nine goes on to say “the leaders of the people cause them to err, and those who are led by them are destroyed.” Have we been following the leaders who feed us that which is spoiled and makes our stomachs ache? If so, verse 17 states that we are a hypocrites and an evildoers who speak folly. Jesus says to be not of the world, even as I am not of it, but be a light in the world as I am the light. I encourage all of us to purge out any darkness and become a part of God's solution and let that which manifests from us, like the beautiful sea shells God sees in us be a living legacy of His righteousness.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
