Getting rid of the old

Daily Thought

Your Word for 22 July 2024

Genesis 48:21
Then he said to Joseph, ‘Look, I am about to die, but God will be with you and bring you back to the land of your fathers.’

Exodus 19:10 And the Lord said to Moses, “Go to the people and consecrate them today and tomorrow. Have them wash their clothes.”

consecratedConsecration has to do with purifying or washing ourselves of the past.
I recently spoke to a Doctor in our congregation and she told me that she used to work in the emergency room at the hospital. Often and especially over weekends, people would arrive who had been injured in fights resulting from alcohol and substance abuse. She mentioned that one thing she could never get used to was the smell. Especially the blood. It had a significant odour. You could smell the alcohol and other substances in the blood.
If physical substances can affect the smell of our blood so that the Doctor is put off, how much more the sin that creeps into our lives must be a detestable odour to God.
It is for this very reason that we must deal with these things so that we can be clean, holy and prepared for what God has got prepared for us.
