Truth and Purity

lightI John 1:7
But if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sin.

As believers and followers of Jesus we must conduct ourselves in truth and spiritual purity. We must not only know God’s word, we must live it out in our thoughts and actions. When we do, we have spiritual intimacy with other believers.

When we do fall short in thought or deed, we have wandered from God’s laws. We need to turn around, go back, and ask Father God to cleanse us with the blood Jesus. His blood purifies, consecrates, and dedicates us to Him and His service once again.

Let us go to God and admit the dark thoughts we have entertained and allowed to become action, that we may once again have fellowship with Jesus and His followers.

Lord God, I have sinned against You in thought and deed.
I ask Your forgiveness.
Cleanse me with Jesus’ blood that I may once again
enter Your presence and enjoy fellowship only You afford.
