Will thou pass over me today?

Without my being blest?

OPENING PRAYER: Almighty Father, please teach me how to cleanse myself daily for your use in Jesus' name.

BIBLE PASSAGE: Hebrews 10:19-23.

[19]Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,

[20]By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;

[21]And having an high priest over the house of God;

[22]Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

[23]Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)

INTRODUCTION: God's desire is that His people will be clean outwardly and inwardly

(Zech.3:4). He loves those whose hearts and

lives are perfect towards Him and has made

adequate provision for their all-round cleansing (Heb.10:22). In Psalm 51:7 David prayed for God's cleansing. We also have a crucial role to play in this matter. Therefore, we need to examine the issue of self-cleansing carefully.

MEMORY VERSE: "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."

2 Corinthians 7:1.
