Is Your Flywheel Broken?
Sgs 2:15 Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines [have] tender grapes.
If you were at church Sunday night, you watched the movie "Flywheel" with us, or perhaps you have seen it in the privacy of your own home. Anyhow, the whole premise of the movie is about this used car salesman whose life, marriage and religion are going nowhere, because he has let the little things like greed, anger, and pride take control.
He buys this old Triumph, which won't run, but Max, the mechanic, gets to digging and finds that a part called the flywheel which turns the crank shaft is messed up. Once this seemingly insignificant part is replaced, the engine then can run. Jay Austin, the fictitious car salesman, also figures out what Solomon said in our verse, "The little foxes spoil the vines." Most will not go out and get locked up for grand theft or murder. Most will not become rapist and sexual addicts, but those little insignificant sins like greed, anger, worry, discontentment and pride will do a number on you and rob you of the joy that Christ wants you to have.
John 10:10 states, "The thief comes but for to kill, steal and destroy. I am come that you might have life, and have it more abundantly." Christ can give you an abundant life, if you will just let him fix your flywheel! Don't let the little foxes spoil the vines and keep you from God's best this week!!! God Bless!
