Verse of the Day

To the pure, all things are pure, but to those who are corrupted and do not believe, nothing is pure. In fact, both their minds and consciences are corrupted. —Titus 1:15

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

Rust stains, grass stains, blood stains, chocolate stains. ARGH! Those stains are real nightmares in the laundry room. They don’t just leave a stain on the fabric’s surface, but they also leave a residue that infiltrates the fibers of our clothes. Evil is that way with our souls. We must not kid ourselves. Evil corrupts and leaves a residue that corrupts everything it touches and permeates — including the hearts of otherwise decent people. That’s why we are urged to stay far away from evil and avoid its very appearance. That’s also why Jesus died: not only to overcome the evil one but also to clean away the stain and purify our hearts from all of its residues.


My Prayer…

Father, guard my path and give me good Christian friends who will help guard my life from evil. In addition, dear Father, please help me as I seek to share Christ’s cleansing and liberating power with those around me who are caught in evil’s destructive and deceptive grasp. In the mighty name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.

  1. Titus 1:15
    To the pure all things are pure, but to those who are corrupted and do not believe, nothing is pure. In fact, both their minds and consciences are corrupted.

    If a person’s inner life is not pure, if they do not have faith in the Lord Jesus, then nothing is pure to them. Everything they see or hear is corrupt and tainted towards the sinful. They take offense easily and are always scheming against others before others take advantage of them! This is what the life without Christ has taught them.
    Our world is filled with people that act and think this way. The only remedy to this kind of mind set is to accept Christ as Lord and Savior! Only He can bring purity to the mind of a human being, only He can bring peace and contentment to the heart of an individual.

    When we as Christians interact at work, school, or the market place with the unsaved they will hopefully see a difference in us. We have the indwelling Holy Spirit which enables us to see the good that is around us and to act in love towards these sad souls and offer them the hope that is found only in Christ! If we neglect to tell them the plan of salvation and to show them the love, grace, and mercy of Christ then we have not only done them an injustice, we have missed an opportunity to do as Christ said in Mark 16:15, and Matthew 28:19;
    And He (Jesus) said to them, “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.”

    So, as you go out into your world today look for those who desperately need Jesus and share Him with them!

    Father God, thank You for loving me and for sending Jesus to save my soul and to wash my sins white as snow through His precious blood shed for me! Help me to live out my faith each day and to open my mouth and tell others of Your saving grace. I love You so Abba and desire to serve You all the days that You give me, in Jesus name, Amen!
