But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. – 1 John 1:7
How clean do you feel? Now I am not talking about the effectiveness of those new beauty products you received for Christmas. Nor am I referring to your outward appearance. I am talking about inside, how spiritual clean to you feel?
There are many Christians who walk around feeling guilty, and the devil will always make you feel that you are not qualified or clean enough to go near God. But the truth is, regardless of how you feel and what you have done, the blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sin.
It is not our good works, what make us clean. It’s not when we pray enough or give enough that we are clean. The only thing that can make us clean is the blood of Jesus.
In the original Greek text, the tense for the word “cleanses” denotes a present continuous action. Consequently, once you’re a believer, the blood of Jesus Christ keeps on cleansing you from every sin!
The Bible says that we overcome the devil, the accuser of our brethren, by the blood of the Lamb. (Revelation 12:11) If you have sinned, remind yourself that Jesus’ blood keeps on cleansing you from every sin—24 hours a day, seven days a week—and move on with God! The devil cannot defeat you when your faith is in the blood that cleanses you continuously.
