The function of the filter is to protect. In the case of cars, it is to protect particles from reaching the engine, in the case of vacuum cleaners it protects by preventing the dirt we collect from being expelled again. Today, due to the pandemic, many still use filter masks to prevent viruses and bacteria from entering our body through the air we breathe. In short, we can conclude that the filter is to protect us. I believe without fear of being wrong that each one of us is being summoned to change our own filter. Do we agree?
So, this means that we also need a filter. And our filter is the written word of God which we know as the Holy Bible. The Bible is that filter that teaches us how to avoid getting dirty, contaminating ourselves with what we see, eat and do. If we continue through life without a filter, each day we will be more contaminated and so sick, although that is not the most dangerous thing. I imagine you are wondering: And then what can be more dangerous than that? The negative influence that the wrong people have on our lives. Toxic people whose sole purpose in life is to lead others to the same failure they are. People who drain us and contribute nothing to our growth.
Therefore, I ask you who is reading this article: How is your filter? If the answer, is I have never changed it, then I urgently invite you to stop everything and ask the father in prayer to reveal it to you, to cleanse you, to help you stay clean. May your Holy Spirit be the active filter in your life. I am convinced that your life will be much better!
