“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.” James 4:8 NKJV
Before it was cool and essential to wash your hands, I was washing my hands. I have worked most of my life in careers that require much hand washing. So hand washing was never an option for our family. But just in case you needed a reminder, God even sees hand washing as essential. Now keep in mind what God is saying in the spiritual realm will always take place in the physical. So when he is telling them to wash their hands of the sin that is in their life, in other words get rid of the filth that is covering you, wash your hands of it, keep it off of you. Is also very real in the physical realm. Wash your hands to remove the things that are trying to attach themselves to you, get rid of not only the dirt and grime, but the germs and things that want to kill you. Sin desires to make you sick, sick in your spirit. Sin desires to kill you, to destroy your life and ultimately your soul. But God tells us wash your hands of it, in other words be done with the sin in your life. Just like you wash your hands to get rid of germs, you must also wash your hands of the sin in your life. Let 2021 be a year that every time we wash our hands we are reminded that God wants us to wash our hands of the sin and thinking that is trying to destroy us. Happy Hand Washing!
