What is your Aura?

What is your AruaYour aura is everywhere in your house where you live. Aura is a particular atmosphere that seems to arise from and surround a person or thing. A psychiatrist needs only a three minute walk-thru of your domicile and he can write your bio: your values, dreams, lusts, your naked self! Scary? Wow! We are transparent. Our homes exude what we live for, or better still, who we live for?

God has something to say about what should be in our homes. “Tie my laws between your eyes and write them on your doorframes and on your houses,” Duet 6:8, 9, a commandment best interpreted as symbols because he previously said, “These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts.” 6:6

So without religious relics: clerical collar, rosary around the waist, Watch Tower in hand, or even a cross, our homes will mirror the One who said, “I’m going to my Father to build you a permanent home, full of my aura.” And remember, you can hang a cross on your barn, but “it ain’t gonna turn yer horses into saints.”

On an annual air conditioning inspection of our house, as the service person got ready to leave, I asked him, “What do you think the purpose of life is?” His response was “I knew you was going to ask me that. I knew you was Christians the minute I stepped into your house.” Obviously, our homes can “talk” the love affair we have with the Shepherd of our souls.

Recently a salesperson barged into our house one day with his air purifying system. Three minutes into the sales pitch, he stopped, and asked, “You’re Christians, aren’t you?” My wife looked at me; I looked at her. We hadn’t said a word. And no religious sayings or pictures hang on our walls. No other explanation than the Spirit’s aroma and aura [I like that word!] “spoke” through us. These incidents do not elevate my wife and me. We’re only sinners saved by grace. It’s all about God’s laws “upon our hearts” spilling out to others.

  2. DEAR LEON, JUST READ, “WHAT IS YOUR AURA” I LIKED IT VERY MUCH AND I UNDERSTAND AURA. I TELL EVERYONE WHO COMES TO MY HOUSE THAT THIS IS NOT MY HOUSE…”IT IS THE LORD’S HOUSE AND I AM JUST USING IT FOR A SHORT TIME”…I REALLY MEAN IT. ALL WE HAVE IS HIS. IF CHRIST LIVES IN US THEN OUR AURA SHOULD REFLECT JESUS. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PHONE CALL JUST NOW…. IT IS ALWAYS GOOD TO SPEAK WITH YOU. I WILL PRAY FOR EMILY’S SISTER AND MY PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU FOR STRENGTH AND HEALING. I BELIEVE IN MIRACLES. DO YOU? IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS, RUTHE WILL YOU SING ME INTO HEAVEN? THANKS FOR SHARING ABOUT YOU WORDS TO HENRY DEKKER!

  3. Another engaging title – the word “aura” sent me to the dictionary, because my first thought was leaning toward something “new age”. But I was mistaken, it’ s something “real” but intangible, emanating from within yet discernible from without. And for believer’s in Jesus Christ, that aura is the presence, power, love, and aroma of the Holy Spirit. Your personal examples affirm that truth, it’s not something you’re aware of, but it’s quite evident to others! Not only do you “let your light shine” but you also ” exude the aura” – to the glory of God.

      Thank you is weak. Praise the Lord for you!! I depend on your response. I get one from you. Ruthie, and Betsy. My 3 supporters!! But yours is valued. Yes, treasured. You encourage and inspire me far beyond words. The Holy Spirit speaks to me thru you. God is so good to me. Such a sinner saved by grace. Thank you again for your encouraging words!

      Not to minimize the message in Aura,” but not one of you 3 commented on the one sentence humor. Was it too much? When I was listing the religious relics that “cross humor” wrote itself. (I hope HS inspired.) I was roaring with laughter at my own joke. Bad , I know. Even the bad grammar wrote itself.

  4. Really funny- the “aura” from the horses is something else to ponder! Sadly, we all know people who have leave that same stench!
