Kitchen Table Devotions
Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unstained by the world.
The world doesn’t have to steal us, it only needs to stain us to sabotage the work of God in our lives. Keep yourself unstained by the world. We will find out in chapter two that involves the motives, not just the mind. Only the Scriptures can reveal the stain and only the Savior can remove it. Bad religion tolerates stains, good religion tackles it. Don’t be afraid to let the Scriptures reveal the stains of sin and don’t be afraid to let the Savior remove them, it’s painless. He paid the price for our cleaning; we just need to receive it because we want it. Want to really live in the power of God, with the passion of God for the pleasure of God? Deal with even the stains of sin by listening to and living by the voice of God.
