The Making of a Spiritual Diamond show #2 - "Rough and Uncut." This is the second show of the series comparing a natural stone's cutting process to the cutting process of Christian maturity.
Once the natural stone has been found, the condition it is in is a "rough and uncut" one. It has been beneath the earth covered with all kinds of debris. Even when it is pushed to the earth's surface it is still covered with debris until the gem cutter gets it and begins the cutting process.
Spiritually, to grow and mature, you must be free from the being "rough and uncut." Titus 2:11-14 says "For the grace of God has been revealed, bringing salvation to all people. And we are instructed to turn from godless living and sinful pleasures. We should live in this evil world with wisdom, righteousness, and devotion to God, while we look forward with hope to that wonderful day when the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will be revealed. He gave his life to free us from every kind of sin, to cleanse us, and to make us his very own people, totally committed to doing good deeds."
You don't want to be a dirty diamond!
To get pass the rough and uncut stage you will need God's grace to empower you with thecourage to change. A dirty diamond is one of two things: a rough diamond or a diamond that hasn't been cleaned in a while.
