Get Clean!

“Wash and make yourselves clean. Take your evil deeds out of my sight; stop doing wrong. Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.” Isaiah 1:16-17 NIV

I used to hear people say, "Cleanliness is next to godliness." Well, the word of God declares that cleanliness is REQUIRED for godliness... spiritual cleanliness, that is! There is no way to escape it... HOLINESS IS RIGHT and required! We must STOP doing wrong. True repentance bears the fruit of change. Yes, we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God... [Notice the PAST tense...] That's no excuse to continue in iniquity. It's okay to have a past, but we need to let God mold our present. Turn away from sin!
