We Are All Unclean

Scripture Numbers 19: [20] But if a person who is unclean does not purify himself, he must be cut off from the community, because he has defiled the sanctuary of the LORD. The water of cleansing has not been sprinkled on him, and he is unclean.

Observation: Apart from Jesus we are all unclean, we have only been cleansed through the blood of Christ. Even with that we make ourselves unclean by the things we do and people we hurt out of our own selfishness. We set ourselves outside of the community at times when we think of our own wants over the needs of others. When this happens we need to be purified with our Lord asking for His forgiveness and guidance so we can get back on track to the life He has called us to.

Application: I need to realize I’m only clean, because of Jesus and need His help to stay that way. Without my Lord I continue to sin and make myself unclean. He needs to be the most important thing in my life and I need His guidance to stay clean and be part of the community He has placed me in.

Prayer: My Lord your servant comes before you unclean and unworthy. Please clean your servant and open my eyes to how to be the best servant I can be for you and be a representative of your love to others.
