"Clean" - 05/16/17 - Jeremiah 7-9

“‘Clean up your act—the way you live, the things you do—so I can make my home with you in this place."(7:3)

No matter how much we "clean", we would never be able to have our Lord live within us.  For He is Holy.  completely.  through and through.
And us.  Well.  We are not. 
When outside of Christ. 
It is only through and "in" our Christ we are made Holy. 
Only then are we able to be with our ABBA.  For our Christ is the only filter which is able to "clean" us.
This doesn't mean when "in" Christ we have free reign to live our lives whichever and however.
The amazing part of our heart transforming through our Christ is when we come to the place where our only motivation is pleasing our ABBA because of LOVE.
Not for what we get in exchange.  Not for how "good" it makes us feel. 
We get to the place where "we" don't matter.  Only ABBA.
And then we desire for the all of "we" to be totally His. 
At Home within our hearts. souls.  and minds.
