Topic: CLEANSING BY THE WORD
“Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.” John 15:3
It is completely awesome thinking about the usefulness of God’s word in our lives. Jesus speaking in our opening scripture shows us yet another way the word benefits us as children of God. He said we are clean through the word. So true.
You know, in receiving Christ it is our spirit that is born anew, our mind remains the same. This has been an issue for some because they wonder why they still have some negative cravings; it is simply because the mind needs some cleansing from old thought patterns, negative imaginations and all other sorts of evil desires. So, it is handed to us in the word. The word of God is that cleansing agent that completely wipes out all sorts of imaginations, cravings and desires that pertain to unrighteousness.
More so, it doesn’t just wipe these things away, it also replaces them with Godly, beautiful and lovely thoughts and desires. Some people wonder why they keep talking wrongly and speaking guile, it is simply a matter of cleansing of your mind. The bible says out of the fullness of the heart the mouth speaketh, so if the heart is filled with dirt, you cant speak clean words. What is required is more intake of Gods’ word. As it gets into your spirit, it cleanses out every contrary stuff in your heart and then it settles. It is light, so it cleanses out every darkness when you receive it into your spirit. The word of God refreshes us in a dark and negative world. If you feel overburdened because of the challenges faced in the world around you, what you need is refreshment through the word. Just like you would take your bath when you come back from the days work to refresh and clean up your physical body from physical dirts, more so you should clean up your inner man everyday with the word from every kind of spiritual dirt.
This is why you must receive the word of God with gladness and meekness. As you do this, you’ll see your life go from glory to glory by the Spirit of the Lord. Your thoughts and imaginations would be pure thereby giving you a beautiful and glorious life.
SCRIPTIRAL REF: EPHESIANS 5:26, ROMANS 12:2
PRAYER: Lord I thank you for your word that purifies my spirit and soul from all unrighteousness. As I receive your word today, I will be completely refreshed by it in Jesus name. Amen.
