Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. 2 Corinthians 7:1
In light of the wonderful promises of God that include the abiding presence of the Holy Spirit, purpose for life now, eternal life in heaven, fellowship with the saints, etc., Paul says respond by allowing God to perfect holiness in us. This is the reverent response to God’s love.
Is there any defilement of flesh and spirit that is in need of cleansing?
God, please do Your perfecting work in me. And may Your Word be received into hearts and minds today at the churches in Corona. Move in our midst in power. Be glorified and pleased as we worship You.
