I got my teeth cleaned yesterday and a new hygienist got the “pleasure” of working on my “38 years of drinking Mountain Dew and eating m&ms” teeth and gums. I was comfortable with my “old” hygienist, she knew all my dental “faults” (it would take a whole staff of another kind of professional to deal with all my non-dental faults.) Why is it so much harder to “open up” to someone new?
The whole experience reminded me of what true christian community is all about. (Hows that for an advertisement? ” Hanging with Christians is like getting your teeth cleaned.”) It can be a little uncomfortable at times, but “opening up” to our fellow followers of Jesus is the only way we can truly live a “clean and healthy” life… What do you think?
Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and wonderful results. James 5:16 nlt
