Bible Verse for Today
Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. (James 4:8)
One thing we need to point out in this verse is that we are first asked to come to God before we are asked to sin no more.
So many people do it the other way around. They think they can never come to God, make a relationship with Him, and become Christians because there are still things left in their lives to overcome. They try to get their lives in order to be good enough to have a relationship with God. But this is wrong.
Jesus came because we could never be good enough without him. His death, his blood is the ultimate price of our sins – he paid for our guilt.
If we do not come to God through Jesus, we can not be cleansed of our sin. God longs for you to come to Him today. Do not stay away from him because you believe the lie that you first have to free yourself from your sin. Instead, come to God and be cleansed of Him by the vicarious sacrifice that Jesus brought for you.
