WE CAN’T AFFORD TO BE UNCLEAN INWARDLY

An examination of conscience every now and then helps an individual to remain pious to a certain extend.

I was thinking of the state of my soul for the preparation of a happy death and I have found some relationship gap with the Lord.

I am not perfect ,I mean I am not ready for a happy death because I have to strive hard to renounce few evil practices.

When I was somewhat puffing up for my prayer habits the thought of the death of one of Jesus’ disciples came to my mind.

Judas Iscariot ,the man who sat beside his master at the time of the Last Supper ate with Jesus but had conspired to hand over Jesus to his enemies .He had taken thirty silver coins for the purpose .

After the arrest of Jesus and his trial and crucifixion Judas was no where around perhaps he had committed suicide as he was unclean inwardly.

Prayer life itself is a mystery ,I can pray at least four times a day .I read the Holy Bible in the morning three psalms and two chapters and at night 9 Psalms daily .

I have failed to give up my evil practices.I know that my weakness shows the strength of the Lord yet I am hopeful because he is a loving father.

Despite my weaknesses and my frailty the Lord has promised to remain with you and with me.

Where will the divine master go without the devotees ?There are enough reasons to rejoice because he has said that he exists “And this is the will of him who sent me,that I shall lose none of all those he has given me,but raise them up at the last day” -John 6:39 he had come to this world to find the lost sheep .

So I am happy to know that the Lord is looking for you and me ,he won’t rest until I am saved .

Thank you very much .Take care.

  3. You post and God’s words are Hope. True that we can’t afford to be unclean inwardly. Unfortunately, it’s so easy to do so and the world even celebrates people who are rich and famous even if how it happened goes against God’s teachings. Thanks for sharing.
