“Therefore, my dear friends, since we have these promises, let us purify ourselves from everything that can defile either body or spirit, and strive to be completely holy, out of reverence for God.”
2 Corinthians 7:1 CJB
Chapter six ended with the promise that God will dwell and walk with us 2 Corinthians 6:16! The key is to obey the LORD and do what He tells us to do and walk in His ways!
“Let the wicked person abandon his way and the evil person his thoughts; let him return to Adonai, and he will have mercy on him; let him return to our God, for he will freely forgive.”
Isaiah 55:7 CJB
We all really need to abandon walking in worldly ways and cleanse ourselves with the water of His word. We need to stop doing things our own way!
Wash the evil from your heart, Yerushalayim, so that you can be saved. How long will you harbor within yourselves your evil thoughts?”
Jeremiah 4:14 CJB
The best thing we can do for ourselves is to be in the word of the LORD, washing away the things of the world! We all really need to stop trying to do things our own way!
Have a blessed day renewing your heart in the LORD.
