Scripture Is The Scrub Brush That Is Designed To Sanctify And Cleanse Me

In review of John 17:17 it says, "Make them holy by your truth; teach them your word, which is truth."

Bottom Line:
We are made holy by learning his truth.

What this means to me:
I am set apart and made holy by the truth that your word teaches me. Your word is truth.

As a follower of Christ, I become sanctified (set apart for his use, cleansed and made holy) through believing and obeying the God’s Word (Hebrews 4:12). God’s word is living and active. It has the ability to expose and discover my innermost thoughts and desires, exposing them for what they really are. Daily application of God’s Word will have a purifying effect on my mind and heart. Scripture points out my sin, motivates me to confess, renews my relationship with Christ, and guides me back to the right path.

In summary, I am set apart and made holy by being immersed in the truth that your word teaches me. God I thank you this morning for providing me your written truth. It is through this, that I am shown your perspective. I use this to ask for forgiveness of my transgressions and to change my perspective on life. Each day I ask you to show me something that will help my understanding of you, your love, or how to love others. Keep my life on target by pointing out my wrongs and encouraging me in living out what is right and true.
