What makes our spirit itchy, so to say? For example: before i really came to the Lord i listened to rap music. i loved the beat, (still do). But as i've come closer to My loving Savior, i started really listening to the lyrics, hearing them. The words were foul and degrading, and quite frankly my spirit became "itchy" so to say. i was bothered, where as before i would just bop my head to the beat.
This is just one example from my life, there are many more. i have learned the more you draw near to Him the more sensitive you become to what doesnt honor Him. Does this mean i don't listen to rap music? Yes, and no. i actually have found some amazing Christian rap artists that i love, but no to secular rap. it is not the message i want to put in my head and heart.
My hope in writing these thoughts down, is that we take a look at what we may/or should be allergic to as Christians. Are we always going to do things right? Absolutely not. Once again, we are human. i am human. Just because i am a Christian doesn't mean i am immune to failing time to time. But i know life is better with Him who lives in me. And His grace and forgiveness is immeasurable. As Paul says in Galatians 2:20-21 "i have been crucified with Christ and i no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life i now live in the body, i live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. i do not set aside grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!"
So if you are feeling some allergies come on, take notice. And take the antihistamine, which is Gods word and prayer with Him. He loves you more than you will ever comprehend. You are loved!
