A reminder for today
Because we have these promises, dear friends, let us cleanse ourselves from everything that can defile our body or spirit. And let us work toward complete holiness because we fear God. (2 Corinthians 7:1)
Yesterday was a public holiday here in South Africa as everyone went to the poles to vote for local government. People all over our city went to their respective wards to make their cross against their party. I stood in the queue listening to the people around me and I thought about God’s promises. How God promises to take care of us and help us when we are in need. How He loves us and how He watches over us. I heard the people talking about their plans for the day ahead and what they still wanted to do. Everyone seemed so calm and collective. Every person has an expectation from the outcome of the election. Just like that we have an expectation when we commit our lives to Jesus.
It is the enemy that continuously tries and defile our bodies and leave us ashamed and lost. But when we have God in us we become holy regardless our mistakes and our past. We make a conscious decision to turn from evil and live a life where we cleanse ourselves from everything that can defile our bodies and our spirits. We start to live differently as we work towards complete holiness.
Let go of the past and look ahead at the light that awaits you. Steer away from evil and everything that could make you fall. Seek the Lord’s voice in every decision and listen with you heart.
Lord, we ask that you give us the strength and knowledge to live a life where we steer clear of evil so that we can prosper in your name. In Jesus name.
Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
