Let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit

We must guard against worldly pleasures and sin, and we achieve this by seeking the Lord and walking in His ways, obeying and respecting His word.

Thanks to the Bible we can obtain the wisdom that comes from God, and thanks to this wisdom we can become better children of God, clean from all contamination. We must remain faithful, pure, without stain before God, let’s not let our spirit be contaminated.

The Bible urges us to be pure and spotless, free from all contamination to be raised up on that day when the Lord comes for his church.

As children of God we must be obedient to be better people in the ways of God, let’s take this advice that the apostle Paul gives us:

Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

2 Corinthians 7:1 (KJV)

We serve Christ so that one day we can be lifted up by Him, when He comes to look for His church, and what must we do so that we can go with Him? To be free from all contamination, both of the flesh and of the spirit, as the previous verse has just shown us.

So, if we want to be close to our God, we must turn away from everything that can contaminate our spirit and our flesh. Let us pray to God asking him to give us strength and wisdom to be able to be separated from all evil and reunite with Him for all eternity.

Grounded and Settled In the Faith
His righteousness endures forever
