Come to the Lord, come to Him with a pure heart. Put away from you all evil and sinful ways from your heart. Learn to do good, put wicked ways far from you.
The Lord is calling all to repentance, for all to abandon the crooked and evil ways of this world. Look to Jesus the Author and Finisher of your faith. For it is in Him, with Him, and through Him that all are made clean and perfect in the sight of God.
“Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense with me, to repay each one for what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.” Revelation 22:12-13
Wash your hands and cleanse your souls before the Lord. Then come to Him with a pure heart. Let Him root out any wrong that is deep down within. Then you will be able to stand firm on the Rock your foundation who is Jesus Christ, the King of kings and Lord of Lords.
Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Be wretched and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you. James 4:8-10
He will strengthen and embolden you to take on any task. Call on the Lord for wisdom and understanding, to fight against injustice, to face whatever foe comes against you, to rescue the lost, and reach out to the broken and the destitute.
May the Lord Himself lift you up. May He carry you through each and every trial. May He fight your battles, surrounding you with His protection. May He strengthen and instruct you in all His ways, provide all your needs, and cleanse you from all your sin. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean; remove the evil of your deeds from before my eyes; cease to do evil, learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.
“Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool. If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be eaten by the sword; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.” Isaiah 1:16-20
