THE REGULAR PERSON 

Do you want to be regular? That means do you want to be sane? You may ask what has sanity got to do with being regular? Regular and sanity are about getting the waste out. You know, put the rubbish out. Keep clean. Sanity is from the root word sanitation. Sanitation we all know is about waste removal. It is very important that we put the rubbish out otherwise we live in a pigsty. Living in a pigsty is dirty living and dirty living is unhygienic and such we get unhealthy bodies and minds. Living dirty we get diseases etc. 

We all should want to be regular, we all should want to be sane, we all should want to be clean. 

But what makes us dirty? What makes us unclean? What makes us un regular? What makes us insane?

God our almighty creator is all clean. “Cleanliness is next to Godliness”. So if we get away from being clean we get away from God. God is all sane. To be regular is sanity. Humans are meant to keep clean. We are meant to follow in the steps of Gods all clean Son JESUS CHRIST. 

God calls dirtiness – sin. Sinning makes us un clean and sin separates us from God. So what is sin? The Bible tells us what are sins. First God gave to the Hebrews (Gods elect) the 10 commandments. We as Christians (the new elect of God) uphold these 10 commandments. Christians are given two new commandments that supersede the 10 commandments. These two new commandments are simply to LOVE God and LOVE your neighbour. The 10 commandments given to the Hebrews is the OLD will; the two LOVE commandments are the NEW will. The new will supersedes the old will. 

Sin makes us un clean and sin makes us insane and sin makes us un healthy. We are not regular if we carry on sinning. BUT we are not perfect humans and getting dirty is part and parcel of life. Yes we can not be squeaky clean 24/7. We get dirty but we can adjust and control how dirty we get by our actions and words. After getting dirty we can at times go to God in prayer and confess our sins and God in his grace and mercy forgives our sins and washes us clean in the blood of Jesus Christ (this cleansing in JESUS blood is a mystery). 

Keeping regular can be to do with the food and drinks we consume. Now a days people eat not because they NEED to eat and drink but because they WANT to eat and drink. So wants can be detrimental to mankind. In the way past before materialism, luxury and heaps of food was available; man hunted and scavenged for his food and man grew his own food. In those early days you ate and drank what you needed. In those days man was not obese. Wants make man obese. Wants make man un regular. “The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want” (Psalm 23). The Lord God provides our needs not wants. You don’t pray to God for a new BMW car. We don’t need a status car. You are mocking God if you pray for wants. JESUS when he was on this earth had just his needs met not his wants. Wanting can be a big dark deep hole. Wanting has no end. So if we eat and drink for our needs we keep regular and we keep sane. JESUS commands us to LOVE. But we are not to love as the people of the world love we are to love as the Bible instructs us. Love of God keeps us regular and sane. God Love is simple, God love is not complex, God love is straightforward, God love is not complicated. The world is complicated and people make their lives complex and complicated but God brings simplicity and truth. 

We consume Gods WORDS that are simple, WORDS that provide our needs (not wants), WORDS that make us regular, sane and clean. 

Then there is eating the wrong sort of food; what we may call junk food. Gods WORDS are all simple truth and if we keep consuming Gods WORDS we also will try and consume good foods and drinks. There’s good foods and drinks and there’s bad foods and drinks. People who are wise eat and drink wisely. Gluttony is a sin. Gluttony is a want not a need. Sins can go down through the family tree. Dirty parents, dirty children. If you raise your children in a dirty nest full of worms and parasites (demons) then the children will be dirty. 

In our materialistic age where WANTS are more important than NEEDS and BAD food is eaten more than GOOD food and man HATES rather than LOVES – mankind is constipated and not regular. 

Being regular is a sign of being wise. Get rid of that waste and stay clean.

Yours Sincerely; Lester John Murray.
