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.

There are some days that you can come home from work, the store, or school and feel so filthy from the world that you just walked out of. Maybe you have experienced this feeling before. It is an uncomfortable feeling that creeps over you, and all you want to do is simply feel the Holy Spirit near you. Perhaps there are things in your life that you know shouldn’t be there, and you have that persistent conviction from the Holy Spirit that something isn’t right. The Lord wants us to walk with Him each and every moment of our days, remembering and thinking on His promises to us.

The Apostle Paul constrained the Corinthians to sanctify their vessels unto honor for the Lord. The same requirement is for us as well. By the grace of God, the Blood of Jesus Christ has met the requirement for our sin. However, the enemy tries to input the filthiness of the world into our flesh and spirit. Therefore, let us cleanse ourselves from everything that would contaminate the flesh and spirit. Let us strive to live a consecrated life, set apart for the Lord in the fear of God.

Don’t let the enemy discourage your walk in the Lord each day. Sanctification is a process that will continue until we are changed and step into the next dimension. Satan will try to distract you from a consecrated life by constantly making you feel unworthy. But the Blood of Jesus Christ was shed on our behalf, to give us the ability to walk boldly before the throne of grace to obtain mercy.

Know that the Lord has forgiven you. Take the right steps to consecrate your life to Him, and keep walking one step at a time with the Lord. He will never forsake you.

59-0712 - “A Total Deliverance”

Dear God, You don't take things unless it's totally delivered. You cannot receive a sacrifice with a blemish on it. You would never receive a prayer that there's sin back in the life of that person. You just could not do it, Lord. You didn't do it in the ages gone by, and You can't do it today. But the sacrifice must be without blemish. And, Lord God, as we lay ourselves on the altar as sacrificed life, take from us, O Lord, all blemishes of sin. I'll completely lay my soul and my body and my strength and my efforts, with this church this morning on the altar. Cleanse us by Thy Blood, and forgive us of every sin that we have did. And may the great Holy Spirit so richly abide in us, and His Presence go with us from this tabernacle this morning, that we'll know within ourselves that He has forgiven us. Then the prayer will be, "Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us." Grant it, Lord.
