S – 2 Chronicles 29:5 – “He said to them, ‘Listen to me, you Levites! Purify yourselves, and purify the Temple of the Lord, the God of your ancestors. Remove all the defiled things from the sanctuary.’”
O – The first thing King Hezekiah, a good king, did was call the nation to purify themselves and their worship. Over a month ago, I was in a meeting with lay leaders at our church. On man said: “The first thing the good kings did was tear down all of the idols. If we are going to be good leaders, we need to be ready to tear down our idols.” It has stuck with me. Spiritual leaders clean house spiritually.
A – Lord, show me how I need to purify myself personally and our church corporately.
P – “Create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit within me.”
Is there anything you know that needs to be purified in order for God to be worship in your life or in your church?
