“I will live in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they will be my people."
2 Corinthians 6:16-18
"Because we have these promises, dear friends, let us cleanse ourselves from everything that can defile our body or spirit. And let us work toward complete holiness because we fear God." 2 Corinthians 7:1
In that top verse, Paul is referring to a promise God made to David in 2 Samuel 7. Theologians approximate that the events of 2 Samuel took place around 1000 BC, and 2 Corinthians around 55 AD. And here we are reading it in 2018. How cool is that?!
Sometimes we get wrapped up in the tornado of our own life, but take a minute now to step back and think about the fact that God always was, always is, and is to come. And these verses are pointing His people, as they have been for centuries, to holiness. God's Word is eternal and we can always count on Him.
Lord, I am so grateful that You are eternal and I can put all of my hope and trust in You. Help me to "work toward complete holiness" day by day. Amen!
