THEME: BE YE CLEAN
MEMORISE: Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the Lord. (Isaiah 52:11)
For anyone to work with God Almighty, he/she must be clean, because our God is holy and of purer eyes to behold sin. Those who still possess the property of the enemy are far from God and cannot please Him. God requires our full commitment to Him first without any reservation. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. That is never an acceptable form of service to the most high God. Many people make the mistake of identifying with God and also the things of this world.
A carnal person cannot please God. If you fear him, you will keep His commandments. There is no alternate explanation for, The fear of the Lord is to depart from iniquity. Many who claim to fear God are still entangled with the affairs of this life. Instead of being mindful of their fellowship with the Creator, they have one leg in the church and one in the world. The scripture warns, Ye cannot serve two masters. Come out from the amusement of the world and take your stand in the Lord.
God requires we serve Him with all our being, for we are created for that purpose. In order for your service to be acceptable in His sight, you must ensure you are clean. Service cannot be substituted for purity, which is the uninterrupted channel of communication with God. You must separate yourself from every ungodly association, conversation, person, and endeavour you are living right, for only then can God become a Father to you.
As the earthly father takes care of his children, so does God take care of His faithful children even much more. If anything is committed into your care in the house of God, do it with all purity of heart. Your service to God and fellowship with Him in spirit and truth is what really matters. God delights so much in holiness, because it is His nature and holy people have favour with God. Therefore, cut-off from any distractions to your Christian life and God will accept your service to Him.
Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:
1. O God, I pray; rid my life of every form of unrighteousness, in Jesus’name.
2. Release upon my life extraordinary grace for righteousness, in
3. Father, let your overcoming power continually rest upon our G. O and Mummy in the Lord and help them to fulfil the demands of our three fold vision and ten billion souls mandate, in Jesus’ name.
