The Yeilded Life


Sometimes we allow sin to come into our lives and hinder the work of grace.  Paul cautions that the blessings of grace upon a yielded life can be hindered by sin.    "Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof." (Ro. 6:12)  Our unwillingness to confess our sin and seek God’s forgiveness and healing may hinder our service.   The floodgates of God’s grace and power can be released only when we are right with Him.


In days gone by, great rafts of loose logs were floated down the rivers to the timber mills.  Loggers could be seen skipping across the logs in an effort to keep them moving freely.   If a particular log became caught upon a rock or obstruction,  thousands of logs could be piled up in what became a huge log jam.  When the logger found this key log and freed it,  the jam would be broken and the logs would glide smoothly again.  Sometimes the jam would be so great,  that dynamite had to be used to free the key log.  The analogy of sin in the Christian’s life is clear.
