Because we have these promises, dear friends, let us cleanse ourselves from everything that can defile our body or spirit. And let us work toward complete holiness because we fear God.(2 Corinthians 7:1)
Living in such a way that no one will stumble because of you is what God desires. When you are in the company of others be careful of what you do and say. Your actions can lead others to Christ or turn them away. You must cleanse yourself on a daily bases to walk in complete holiness. Your actions speak louder than words. Put away those things, ideas, and thoughts that will cause others to stumble. If you are not sure what they are, ask God to reveal them to you. Allow the Holyspirit to convict you of your actions. As you proclaim your Christian life and walk with others, know that you are walking under a microscope! So when trouble, hardships and calamities come, be patient and kind in every way. Don’t allow anything to defile your body or spirit. Maybe it’s your music you have to monitor, your TV shows, the places you go, the people you hang out with, the things you say or put in your mouth. Make a change. Honor God and be completely like Him. God has given us His promises, so activate them in your life!
