Five Areas of Your Life That Need a Clean Up
Allow Stephen Baker to walk you through five areas of your life that need a clean up. You may be surprised by his suggestions!
Life is full of questions and often the answers are difficult. Stephen Baker seeks to answer various questions about life and faith using the Bible as his only source. Listen to Stephen’s show, “Life Questions,” on HopeStreamRadio as he tackles the challenge of life questions.
Around the House
It’s funny but true that most of us like to get things cleaned up regularly. Maybe some of us leave it a little longer than others but eventually we feel the need to get into action. It might be washing the car, tidying the garden or cleaning the house.
Business Clean Up
In business life, despite the daily pressures of survival, we eventually get round to sorting out that filing tray, spring cleaning the store cupboard or tidying the list of clients. It is just a fact of life that things get messy, disorganised of dirty.
May I ask you how is it in your personal life? Do you need to start that diet, go to the dentist, take more exercise or go to bed earlier? We all have things we think we could do better. Go on, set yourself a start date and get going.
Relationship Clean Up
There are also relationship issues we know we need to address but never quite get round to. You know your marriage is suffering and know you need to spend more time together but you just keep patching over things. Have a spring clean – reignite that romance, win each others hearts again. Do the things you know you both love – give your marriage a spring clean.
If could be your relationship with your mother, your children, your siblings. Don’t leave it another week, do something about it.
Your Spiritual Life
The final area I want to remind you about is one you’ll probably choose to ignore – your spiritual life, your relationship with God.
For most of you it will be non-existent. Can I remind you that whether you believe in God or not, He exists. The Bible states ‘there is one God and one mediator between God and man, the man Christ Jesus who gave himself a ransom for all‘. We are in great danger if we ignore God. All of us have sinned and fallen short of His glorious standard.
We all need a major clean up job!
You and I can’t do the clean up ourselves. That’s why Jesus died! His death is sufficient to clear our guilt before God. He (Jesus) came back to life on the third day to prove he had beaten death and can offer forgiveness.
A free clean up is available!
‘The blood of Jesus Christ, God’s Son, cleanses from every sin,‘ 1 John 1:7.
How to apply!
Pray to God and confess that you are guilty. Tell him your desire to turn from your past life. Obey his word and rely on the Lord Jesus Christ uniquely for your forgiveness.
The Bible states – ‘Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved, and thy house‘, Acts 16:31.

HopeStreamRadio has been a huge blessing to me. Since I moved away from an area that had a lot of good Christian radio I have been looking for a station that I could listen to and be encouraged by. HSR has filled that void and it has also been exciting to be a part of the team that contributes to HSR.Mike from MS
