He that hath clean hands and a pure heart shall only enter , saith the Owner of The Vineyard.
Then who shall be able to enter for the earth has been blanketed with sin we are all unclean, cried the Child of The Field-hand.
Yes, but I have made you clean , saith the Owner of The Vineyard .. You did accept my offer, didnt you?
Yes, well , yes, I did , .. said the Child of The Field- hand remembering the story of the shed blood told by the Owner of The Vineyard many days ago. But I do not feel clean.
Oh, Child of The Field-hand, it is not your feelings that your entry into My vineyard is based upon .. it is your heart and My mercy. Have you not accepted that, dear one?
Oh, Owner of the Vineyard, I have I do, Well, I shall try to remember that from now on .. for I do not want to carry the guilt of the blanketed sin. Thank you for reminding me that I have been accepted as a worker in Your field not based on my feelings or even my goodness, but by Your mercy.
Yes, Child of The Field-hand , you are getting it now .. Now you shall find rest and enjoyment in your work.
Both the Owner of The Vineyard and the Child of The Field -hand walked their separate ways. The Owner returning to his place and the Child of The Field-hand returning to his duties.
Very nice, Cindy! It's a great reminder that our feelings have nothing to do with our salvation, it's accepting what the Owner of the Field has done for us. This is a nice devotional, keep them coming!
Welcome to Faithwriters!
Wonderful article and so true. Good reminder for all of us. Good demonstraton of the feelings of the field hand.
I would change the last part about going separate ways. It's good for the field worker to be back to business - the business of the Owner, but, theologically, He is always with us.
Again, a well written article. God bless and keep on writing.
