Read Mark 1:21-45
Focal Passage Mark 1:40-45
No Shirt, No Shoes…No Service
Almost all of us have seen the signs – No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service. Public places display them for obvious reasons and most of us obey. I can’t imagine walking into a gas station or any store for that matter, without shoes – much less without a shirt! How filthy!
As sinners, we are exposed to and carry around with us “filth.” When we ask Jesus into our lives we bring this filth with us.
But no matter how filthy our sin, Jesus wants to touch us and make us clean. Once we’ve trusted Jesus and allowed Him to clean us up,
we need to act and live as God’s children. We need to obey God’s Word and follow His instructions so others might see and feel
His cleansing power, too.
Prayer: Lord, help me live a life that is pleasing to You. Help me guard myself from the filth of the world, showing others a better way to live.
