Forgotten Towels

A few days ago, I made a horrible mistake with my laundry. It was laundry day and my last load of laundry was the bath towels. When I put the towels into the dryer, I continued onward. We had dinner. We took the dog for a walk. I did the dishes. There was a moment when I considered checking on the towels, but I figured that it wasn’t a high priority. I’ve left the towels sit before and everything was fine.

Two days went by and I remembered that I had bath towels in the dryer. I opened the dryer and it hit me—I never turned the dryer on after I shut the door. The smell was horrible. The nice, clean towels that simply needed dried now needed to be rewashed. Everything that was done before now needed done again.

We are like those bath towels. After we accept Jesus, we are washed clean; however, we cannot just sit there after we are washed. We still have an issue with sin and a need for repentance. We still need to continue on our walk with Christ. If we don’t read and actively study the Bible—if we don’t participate in prayer daily—if we don’t continue to repent for our sins—if we don’t follow God’s will for our lives—if we don’t belong to a church community and serve—we are then wet towels sitting in the dryer. Today, continue on your walk with Christ—read, study, pray, repent, follow, belong, serve. Life isn’t lived standing still.

“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.” – Colossians 2:6-7 [NIV]
