We’ve been washed clean by Jesus. But there is still some decluttering to be done, as we clear out the junk of sin from the basements and attics of our hearts. We must let The Spirit into these dark corners of our hearts to empty us of the bitter attitudes that produce words of malice or fits of rage so that there is more room for Him to make His dwelling within us.
And we pray:
Lord Jesus, thank You for making me new. Sometimes, it is hard to let go of the attitudes and ideas that I have held on to for too long. Please complete Your renewing work in me. Rid me of the sinful thoughts that aren’t from You so that my words and actions may reflect only Your presence in me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
