    “There is a story of a college freshman who went to the dorm laundry room with his dirty clothes bundled into an old sweatshirt.  But he was so embarrassed by how dirty his clothes were that he never opened the bundle.  He merely pushed it into a washing machine and when the machine stopped, pushed the bundle into a dryer, and finally took the still-unopened bundle back to his room.  He discovered, of course, that the clothes had gotten wet and then dry, but not clean.”

    Just as much as we shouldn’t allow dirty laundry to accumulate or “keep it in a safe small bundle”, “God wants to do a thorough cleansing in your life–all the dirty laundry of your life.”

Quote of the day: Carlyle Marney

“Many Christians define sin as the sum total of acts which they themselves do not commit.”

Bible verse of the day:  John 1:29

“The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold!  The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!”

Prayer:

Dear Heavenly Father,

You always have a way for us to flee from sin.  It is a choice that we make whether to sin or not.  You have given us power over sin and although tempting at times, we can overcome it.  Father, I pray that You give me wisdom each day and the strength to endure situations that may lead me to sin.  God, it is not good that we keep our sin bundled up like laundry as if you can’t see it.  Instead, we must allow You to cleanse us from all of our sin, even the ones we think we may have hidden.  I thank You for this day!

In Jesus Name I pray,

Amen
