Dec 2 Devotion: Daily Cleansing

Daily Cleansing

2 Corinthians 7:1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

Have you ever skipped a shower for a day? Maybe you know you aren’t leaving the house that day so you don’t bother with getting a shower. Now you might not have been able to smell you coming from miles away, but we still give off a smell when we don’t shower. Most people wouldn’t think of going out after multiple days of not showering due to the smell. I’m sure we’ve all come across that person you could tell hasn’t showered in days. The smell at times can almost make you sick.

What odor do you think we give off to God when we don’t daily cleanse from the “filthiness of the flesh and spirit?” None of us have, not will we ever, reach sinless perfection here on earth. Therefore, we should practice “cleansing” each day before God. A cleansing that should see us repent for where we’ve failed Him, and turning to Him. We should strive daily to make God the center of our lives!

What odor are you giving off before God today?

God bless you today!
