-I Thessalonians 5:23-24 (NASB)
As we live life and move through our daily routines, we may pick up some spiritual dirt that needs to be washed away. We are often quick to see the dirt on others, but sometimes we don't notice or take the time necessary to get ourselves clean. God is like a diligent, loving parent, waiting to wash us and clean us up after we get dirty, even if we disobey His directions! We must be obedient and willing to allow God to sanctify us, to cleanse us completely and preserve us so that we can further His Kingdom.
Don't resist being spiritually cleansed by God's sanctifying grace!
Thank You for Your willingness to cleanse me and sanctify me. Help me to avoid the "dirt" that is harmful to my soul and my relationship with You. Through Jesus, my Savior and Cleanser, I pray, amen.
