A Lesson On Cleansing 10-16-19

Good day everyone. As I sat down to begin the work of putting together the daily message, a song popped into my head and the first words of the song are: “Won’t He make you clean inside?” of course the He is Jesus. I instantly knew that I was going to search the scriptures for words of wisdom about the word “CLEAN”. Get ready to be blessed.

Today’s Prayer

Father, I come before you this morning on behalf of my brothers and sisters in Christ to ask that You would help us remember that even in the depths of our despair, You are there. Help us remember to rejoice and praise You even then, believing that there is a purpose in everything that happens. Give us the strength to turn our lives over completely to You and to mean it, not dictating answers to our prayers, but being willing to listen and to sincerely put You in charge of our lives. Give us courage to speak honestly in love, not shying away from reality, or lacking the courage to face the painful. Help us to know that You are our only real security and that You will not fail us. Guide us in the paths that we should walk for our sake and we will be careful to give You all honor and glory in the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.

Let’s eat.


Cleansing by Blood

Hebrews 9:14

Just think how much more the blood of Christ will purify our consciences from sinful deeds so that we can worship the living God. For by the power of the eternal Spirit, Christ offered himself to God as a perfect sacrifice for our sins.

Hebrews 9:22

In fact, according to the Law of Moses, nearly everything was purified with blood. For without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness.

Result of Cross; Cleansing by Water

John 13:1-10

Before the Passover celebration, Jesus knew that his hour had come to leave this world and return to his Father. He had loved his disciples during his ministry on earth, and now he loved them to the very end. It was time for supper, and the devil had already prompted Judas, son of Simon Iscariot, to betray Jesus. Jesus knew that the Father had given him authority over everything and that he had come from God and would return to God. So he got up from the table, took off his robe, wrapped a towel around his waist, and poured water into a basin. Then he began to wash the disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel he had around him. When Jesus came to Simon Peter, Peter said to him, “Lord, are you going to wash my feet?” Jesus replied, “You don’t understand now what I am doing, but someday you will.” “No,” Peter protested, “you will never ever wash my feet!” Jesus replied, “Unless I wash you, you won’t belong to me.” Simon Peter exclaimed, “Then wash my hands and head as well, Lord, not just my feet!” Jesus replied, “A person who has bathed all over does not need to wash, except for the feet, to be entirely clean. And you disciples are clean, but not all of you.”

  • The first is never repeated; in virtue of it the believing sinner is regarded as abidingly clean before God.
  • The second is never to be neglected, because by it the believer is kept clean in his ways before men.

Quote of the Day

No matter how dark the sky, how discouraging the circumstances, how desperate the situation, God is there–a God who is too good to forget and too great to fail. God is there, his mighty arm ruling this universe for him, redeeming all who will let him, and reinforcing any who respond to him in faith and obedience!
