“And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.”Matthew 5:30
In Jeremiah 17:9 we read, “The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?” Our hearts serve as the control-room for every part of our body, and without Christ they are beyond cure. Our body parts need to be disciplined to run from sin. When our hearts are clean—made so by the saving blood of Jesus—our whole body will fall in line, and we can stand before our holy God. Let Jesus cut away what is sinful and purify your heart.
O God, cleanse our hearts today. We want the world to see Jesus in everything we do and say.
