Purging Sin From Your Life

1 Peter  1:15  but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct,
1 Corinthians 15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption.

As long as you believe you are a victim of the world & sin, you will never believe the power of God’s righteousness working in and through you. Life is greater than death, for God is greater than all.

My passion is cultivating a deep relationship with God and helping others to do the same. I LOVE sharing with others insights that God has taught me and hearing what God has taught them... thus my blog, Stirring the Deep. My focus is on a relationship, not a religion. Life is in the relationship. I believe in a balance and unity of body, mind and spirit. I feel it's important to nurture all three for they all affect each other. I try to live in the present, where the Holy Spirit is. And I try to do all with the motive of love. I've come to believe life is a journey and not a destination. It isn't about perfection, is it about growth.

  1. Hi Rachel,
    You are so right about purging sin from our lives. Only the pure in heart truly see God. I just happened to read an old post of yours (Jan. 2010) about writing a “love letter” to God. I wrote a book called Love Letters to God: Deeper Intimacy through Written Prayer in 2004 (Multnomah Publisher). I fully concur with you that writing to God is a wonderful means of developing intimacy with HIm. I have journaled to Him for over 30 years and have numerous journals that attest to this fact. I wish you God’s richest blessings as you write *your* love letters to Him. As you know, your life will never be the same!
    Joyful Journaling,

    • Hi Lynn – what a good concept for a book .. journaling is indeed powerful. It has truly helped me to learn and discern God’s still small voice in my life. I recommend it to all.

  2. Transformation involves purging the sin, which is what I would call reckoning the old man dead, but also putting on the new man, renewing the mind. Having a knowledge of the new man definitely casts light on the old man. And I think the more one puts on the new man, the darkness of the old man is revealed. And until the redemption of our bodies, we always have to deal with that old man trying to raise its ugly head, by reckoning it dead. Thank God we have something to put on, not just put off.
