Devotional Reading: I Peter 1:13-21; Background Scripture: Haggai 2:10-19
Key Verse: Is there yet any seed left in the barn? Until now, the vine and the fig tree, the pomgranate and the olive tree have not bourne fruit. From this day on I will bless you. Haggai 2:19
As people of God, we must realize that our obedience to Him should not be governed by the level of our material well being. We should not decide to obey God and/or live a pure life simply on the basis that we will get “something” out of it. This is considered an unclean attitude, and this translates into defiled worship.
Our text speaks of unclean items which could defile the person and/or the worship tent. With that being said, when have you seen the impurity of one person have an impact on a larger group? How has that experience infuenced you personally?
I would love to read your comments.
Remember: Purity must be intentional
