2 Corinthians 7:1
"Therefore, since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God." NIV
"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."KJV
Our God promises that He will accept us, even though we are weak and easily taken in by sin. He has told us He is our Father and we are His children, even though we are stubborn and rebellious. Because of our God's unconditional love and sacrifice for us, the least we can do is dedicate our very lives and soul to Him. This will mean a commitment to get rid of our selfish desires, our bad attitudes, and anything that would stand in the way of total obedience to Him. This will be a life long process out of respectful awe of God Almighty. He will help us to accomplish it.
Heavenly Father, it is such an awesome reality that You would love us in spite of our sinful natures. We ask for Your grace to purify ourselves so that we will be living examples of what Your love will do for those who accept Your Son. We pray this in Jesus' name, Amen.
