James 1:27

"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." NIV

"Pure religion and undefiled before God the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world." KJV

It can be frustrating to bring a shirt out of the washer and there is still a stain on the front of it. If the shirt is worth keeping, we will find a product that will remove that stain and re-wash it. Unfortunately, keeping ourselves unstained by the world is not that easy. First of all, God tells us it is our responsibility to keep ourselves spotless from the pollution of the world. We cannot blame others if we fall into the ways of the world. And there is no earthly means by which we can keep ourselves spiritually clean. If we commit our ways to the Lord and walk in His Spirit, we will have the perfect stain protector and remover.

Heavenly Father, we are sorry that we allow ourselves to get caught up in the world and wear the stains of it in Your presence. Forgive us and help us to live out the words You have spoken that help us to stay unspotted by this world. In Jesus' name, Amen.
