Cleanse yourself from everything that defiles
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/09- “Set Yourself Free—From All Your Debris!” (2 Corinthians 7:1)
Premise Question: How do we, or can we, set ourselves free, and then, stay perpetually free, to continually live free, experiencing complete release and total deliverance, from our sin and the darkness of this world, in order to receive the fullness and gracious gift of salvation and freedom of The LORD?
“Because we have these promises, dear friends, let us cleanse ourselves from everything that can defile our body or spirit. And let us work toward complete holiness because we fear God.” (2 Corinthians 7:1 NLT)
Ergo, in view of and as a direct consequence of Almighty Papa God’s succinct and declarative assurances, that He’s afforded each one of us through His great and precious promises, in which, we presently have total access to and are now in full possession of, dearly beloved fellow members of The Company of The Redeemed, it is therefore, incumbent upon each one of us, to break free, by purging and absolving ourselves from anything and everything that may tend to influence or distract us in an unsuitable manner, or that may even be possibly defiling, debasing or causing debauchery to become a profane stain within and without our body, soul and spirit. We should always make it our life’s aim to conforming absolutely to the description, the exact definition, of the ideal representation of impeccable holiness—Jesus Christ. We can do this, by becoming a personal temple of worship, whereby, our individual life is lived in reverential awe and holy honor exclusively for and unto The LORD GOD Almighty. (2 Corinthians 7:1 PDCP)
Bottom Line: We can set ourselves free, when we, choose to fully accept Papa God’s gracious and most merciful sacrificial offering of deliverance and freedom—His indescribable, inimitable wonderful gift of redeeming salvation. And then, we shall continue to be free, by being obedient and completely compliant to His Word and His divine plan, purpose and will for our lives!
Therefore, it is for this very reason, and truly because of Papa God’s great and precious promises that He has given to us, that we are filled with the sure confidence and full assurance of knowing that He is our Loving Papa God; living, breathing and walking among us, filling us with His joy and peace, comforting us, strengthening us, providing for our needs and ultimately, keeping us eternally safe.
And finally, we can rejoice and be glad, as it is extremely joyful knowing that we are His very own, greatly beloved children, and therefore, it behoves each one of us to, “keep our hearts and lives free of all debris, by flushing the flesh and staying refreshed!” Thus, being set free, with an eternal golden guarantee, to fully experience life and His redeeming salvation, because of His great unfailing love He has for each of us.
