Key Text: Job 14:4 KJV - Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? not one.
Because of the sin of Adam, every man is born into the world with inherited sin, apart from Jesus - the seed of the woman. And no one can cleanse himself from sin or help another man. Only Jesus can transform a sinner into a saint by cleansing them with His precious blood which was shed for many for the remission of sins. Jesus stands at the door of your heart, knocking, that you may let Him in.
The righteousness of man at best can be likened to filthy rags. No unclean thing shall enter the kingdom of heaven. Struggling to keep the law of God will not help anyone. Except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter the kingdom of heaven: outward righteousness alone will not do.
Beloved, the price for your cleansing was fully paid when Jesus died on the cross of Calvary. His shed blood cleanses from all sin and transforms the sinner into a saint. Only believe in Jesus, and receive the power to walk in the Spirit and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. Hallelujah!
Prayer: Almighty Father, I thank you for the gift of salvation, and I receive it, in Jesus name. Amen.
Reflection: Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin? - Proverbs 20:9.
