Just Announced: Philippians Sermon Series

Summary: A sermonette concerning a personal house cleaning.


PSALM 90:12


1. This morning I have just a few minutes.

a. How many times in your life have you felt that you

didn’t have enough time to get something


b. Mothers and grandmothers, how many times have

you not had enough time?

2. Saturday before last, we were having company over for

lunch and with a very busy Revival schedule and Kim’s

school schedule and with three children we were

scrambling to get the house cleaned and lunch ready.

3. Life is often like this and as our text tells us, we should

use our time wisely, because we don’t know how much

time we have.

a. Read text.

4. I want to use this last couple of minutes for you to take a

very quick, urgent inventory of your spiritual house.

a. In a booklet titled "My Heart- Christ’s Home", it

describes the areas of life as the rooms of a house.

b. This inventory is in the bulletin and I want you to

grade each room as follows:

A = excellent rating.

B = good rating.

C = passing, but needs a little dusting.

D = barely passing, needs a lot of cleaning.

F = I am not a Christian, I will fail on this inventory.

I. Library

This room is your mind - what you allow to go into it and

come out of it.

It is the "control room" of the entire house.

II. Dining Room

Appetites, desires, those things that your mind and spirit feed

on for nourishment.

III. Drawing Room

This room is where you draw close to God, seek time with

Him daily, not just in times of distress or need.

IV. Workshop

This room is where your gifts, talents, skills are put to work

for God... by the power of the Spirit.

V. Rumpus Room

The social area of your life- the things you do to amuse

yourself and others.

VI. Hall Closet

The one secret place that no one knows about, but is a real

stumbling block in your walk in the Spirit.


1. Time is short, you need to act now.

2. If you had to take a "F" because you have never asked

Jesus to be your Savior, you have never allowed Jesus into

your heart’s home; He is knocking at your heart’s door and

waiting patiently for you to let Him in.

"Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come into him, and sup with him, and he with Me."

a. Now is the time.

b. You may not have another opportunity.

3. Christians today is the time to allow Christ to clean you


a. Today is the time to let Him clean up those hidden


b. Today is the time to allow Christ first place in your


4. Don’t wait until your time is up, act now.
