Living a Clean Life in God!

In the beginning stages of my walk with God, I felt the need to be so perfect. I wouldn’t wear certain clothes because I was truly afraid that I would go to hell. I wouldn’t even make eye contact with men, to keep myself from possibly lusting for them or opening a door to the enemy.

Today, I can kind of look back at that season and smile because, after twelve years of walking with the Lord, I learned that God never wanted me to become a robot. He didn’t want me to change everything about myself. He didn’t want me to “clean up” to be deemed worthy of Him. He just wanted me…all my trauma, my failed relationships, my daddy wounds, my anxiety, my fear of success, my struggles with alcohol and premarital sex. God didn’t want me perfect, He didn’t want me clean, He only wanted me. 

This reminds me to remember that GOD does the cleaning. I could’ve never been clean enough, and even today with all my good deeds, I am still not clean enough, but JESUS CHRIST came to clean us all. I am not clean due to my good works. I am not clean because I make it to Bible Study every Wednesday or that I give to the poor. I am not clean because I run a ministry and pray daily. I am not clean because I donate to outreach ministries and give back. I am not clean because I don’t drink anymore. I am not clean because I choose not to judge. I am clean only because of the Blood of Jesus Christ. His sacrifice is what has cleaned me. Not my good deeds. 

All these works are great, and help the quality of my life and others, but those are not what makes me “clean” or accepted by God. Those good works didn't happen because of me. They happened because Jesus came into my life and saw all my wounds and pain and took root in my heart. 

Today, I pray you can remember the real reason why we are cleaned. If I could tell my younger self anything, it's to remember to take your eyes off of your good deeds and works and remember the most powerful work of all, and that is the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
