A Call to Purity Psalm 51:10

For the past 2 weeks this scripture has been in my heart and has been part of my prayer. David said "Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me." KJV "Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me." NIV Some of you may know about the Pure Life Revolution (www.pureliferevolution.net) What a time we are living in. There is so much coming at us on a daily basis, and these guys have been standing outside the Hustler store on Church street, silently praying for themselves, the church, this city, this country. A repentance and prayer movement, a stand for purity and justice, starting with us....the church. I pass by them every afternoon on my way home from work, I pray for them and those that are going into that store. I spoke with them today and told them we were praying for them and were thankful for what they were doing. But it has to go farther than that. It is no accident that we were born for such a time as this. As we heard on Wednesday night, you are not an accident. The Potter has formed you, for such a time as this. To be an amazing witness and light to a world without Jesus, as only we can be. It's easy to go with the flow; float downstream with most everyone else; go the way of least resistance. But it takes guts to take a stand for Jesus, for God's word, and love them that are lost and be an example that they can follow. 1 Corinthians 11:1 "Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ." NIV I just wanted to share - I love you guys

Good talking to you today. I was just thinking...this won't give you the proper link to my blog. It goes to an old blog that I used to keep on blogger. I'll see if I can figure out how to give you a link.
