Contamination Leaves No Room for Purity & Promises

2 Corinthians 7:1 (NIV)

Therefore, since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.

*The promises include receiving our heart's desire (Psalm 37:4), having life more abundantly (John 10:10), and receiving exceedingly and abundantly all that we ask (Ephesians 3:20)...These are to name a few. There is so much that God wants to show us and provide, but are we willing to do things to show our love towards Him and His people? Are we willing to clean up our lives from things that are distracting us from receiving clear instructions on what God really has for us, what He is trying to show us, or  instructions on how to prepare? Do we take enough time to cultivate and go deeper in our relationship with Him? Do we want Him more than the stuff? Everything that contaminates your body and spirit is just a distraction that is designed to keep you complacent and away from the next level. Take the time to be honest and truly think about what's holding you back, and how we have become so complacent with who or what we know that it keeps us from embracing the right things or something new that you've always wanted...
