My husband also reads my blog. Last week when I posted about having the right tool for the job for Tutus 2sdays. He laughed and said, “every time I pick up a vise grip, I think what a great sermon.” I asked him “how so?” He proceeds to tell me this little object lesson. Which was pretty good, so I thought I would share with you.
A vise grip is used to grab ahold of a “vice” or problem. You use this tool to help fix a problem, that maybe you couldn’t use another tool for. A vice in your life is like a bad habit. As our savior, Jesus is our “vise grip.” He grabs hold of your sinful ways, gets a grip on them and “yanks” them right out. We might have tried our own ways, a doctor’s advise, read a book about it – however, nothing can take away a “vice” like Jesus.
Ephesians 1:7-10 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.
