2 Corinthians 7:1 - Today's devotional
2 Corinthians 7:1
"Since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves
from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness
out reverence for God."
Thoughts on today's verse: In a world so full of distractions
and temptations, purity is difficult. Even more than difficult, the call
to purity often goes forgotten and ignored. Cheap grace is substituted
for a call to passionate living. While we never want to give in to a
"works righteousness," we also must remember that impurity through
laziness, lack of commitment, or simple rebellion are contaminating to
those claiming to be Christians and ruin our influence before the
Prayer: Purify my heart, my life, my body, my influence, O
God. May my words and my thoughts be blameless in your sight. I want to
be holy as you are holy and honor you as only you are worthy of honor.
You alone are God! Through Jesus I ask it. Amen.
