2 Corinthians 7:1
Since we have these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
▪️We have already the Word of God, which is a tool to maintain us clean from the works of the flesh and it’s filthiness.
What is that we need to clean?
📌 Eyes (Many have fallen because their eyes became evil)
But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
📌Heart (Remove grudges/ heart feelings / pride, which is the main enemy of the Spirit/ and Emotions (The heart is lead by it, and we need to be very watchful otherwise our heart will deceive us and make us to sway from the Spirit)
Guard your heart above all else, for it is the source of life.
📌 Mind ( We need to be cleansing those thoughts that the devil throw to us constantly E.g. Fears, doubts, insecurities, etc..)
Finally, brothers, whatever things are true, whatever things are honest, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue, and if there is any praise, think on these things.
📌Tongue ( Get rid of the lies or half trues/ Gossip and hasting of the mouth, meaning speaking without thinking and rushing to speak your mind/ Words of negativity or defeat)
And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell.
For the ear tests words, as the mouth tastes food.) We need to shun all those words that come to us to divert us from the faith, purity due to Christ)
📌Hands (We need to be watchful that our hands or our efforts are always towards God’s ways and purposes, such as to be faithful in our Tithe’s and Offerings.)
If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life maimed than with two hands to go into hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched,
