FAITH FRIDAY - THE THRESHING FLOOR
It has been quite awhile since I did a FAITH FRIDAY post. I have been saving some, so it is time to get back to this.
I listen to several ministers on TV, and one of them is Ron Carpenter. One week he talked about Ruth and Boaz, and how Boaz slept on the threshing floor. A threshing floor is where wheat is tossed into the air so that the wind blows the chaff away. The wheat kernels are heavier than the chaff, so they fall to the floor.
When harvesting anything there is always a part that is kept and a part that is thrown away.
Jesus lives on the threshing floor. He throws US up in the air. The Holy Spirit is the wind that removes what we don't need, so that eventually only what is good remains in us.
