House Rules – If its dirty…wash it.

Psalm 51:2 states, “Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.”   The meaning of sin in this verse is habitual sinfulness…the kind of wrongdoing that takes over in a slow, gradual way until we’re so accustomed to it, we  can’t see a way out.  When this type of ingrained, continual sin is allowed to fester and grow, it can only lead to serious consequences such as depression and suicidal thoughts.   Habitual sin can be overcome, but we have to first own up to it.  I John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”    If you have a habit that has ownership over you today…confess it to the Lord and allow Him to cleanse you from that guilt and shame.
