1 Peter 2:1 – Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice, all deceit, hypocrisy, envy and all slander.
Lord God, when you came in to my life, you were ruthless in your clean-up efforts. In fact, you utterly killed and destroyed the old me and by the power of your Word raised up a brand new me, holy and clean. This wasn’t just a house refurb project, this was a total rebuild from the foundation up. You were utterly ruthless in getting rid of sin in me; you got rid of it all, forgiving me wholly and completely. Lord God, give me the same zeal and ruthlessness in my life to thoroughly root out of my life all kinds of sin. It’s too easy for me to become complacent and even blind to sins in my life. Get rid of this complacency in my heart and life and make me zealous to thoroughly root out out sin and live for you. Amen.
