Everyday Pure Air
A friend told me the story of a woman in Austria whose father locked her in the basement for over 20 years and in that time she had children who had never seen the sun or even breathed fresh air. To them the basement was a normal world. When the police found them the air was so vile they had to tear down walls and bring in fans just to breathe.
But it’s like we too are living in a basement, a world not perfect, one infected with sin. We don’t even realize we’re breathing putrid air because this is our “normal.” But through the acceptance of God’s love and forgiveness we can believe He’s a Redeemer, working all things for the good with a purpose for us to serve eternally… breathing pure air forever. Look to 1 Corinthians 2:9 with anticipation because “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him”…everyday.
