How can we be clean with the engagements in the world, when almost everything is calling to bring us down and to make us sin against God? But the truth is we can maintain our purity by staying with the word of God. Let’s see…
John 15:3 Now YE ARE CLEAN THROUGH THE WORD which I have spoken unto you.
Cleansing is in the word of God. When we stay with the word of God it makes us clean and it keeps us clean. Jesus said you’re clean through the word that I speak unto you. To keep clean is through the word of God, it means to stay with the sayings of God. When the word of God enters the heart it makes the heart clean. The center at which the word must dwell should be in the heart. When the word stays in the heart it makes the heart clean, for in the heart comes issues of life.
Psalms 119:9 Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.
Psalms 119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
To keep clean is to stay with the word and to take heed according to the word and also to keep the Word in the midst of your heart that’s how to keep clean.
Again we see,
John 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
Sanctification comes through word of God. It’s the surest cleansing of our lives. You must therefore learn to stay with the word to keep clean. God bless you.
