VIP Seating

Over the past few days I've been in Las Vegas with my wife for a short vacation. That place is a cesspool, but that's not the point I want to make today. We were traveling through one of the casino's looking for a place to sit down and watch some of the college bowl games. We arrived at the sports area of one casino and we noticed that most of the seats were taken. The only seats that were not taken had little signs on them that said "VIP only." Obviously that was not us, so we had to keep looking for a place to watch the game. Here's what the Lord impressed upon me later. In people's hearts they have all these "seats." The Lord wants ALL of the seats in your heart. Some people have "VIP reserved" signs on some of their seats though. People reserve seating in their hearts for money, power, fame, sex, and/or any of many other worldly things. As the Lord survey's this scene in their hearts, looking at all those "VIP" signs they reserve for sin and the world, do you think He is pleased? Grace and peace~brother D
