KEEP YOURSELF PURE
TEXT: “Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men’s sins: keep thyself pure” (1Timothy 5:22).
Purity is a desirable quality. It is a state of freedom from pollution and adulteration. Some stains are indelible just as some actions are irreversible. Esau lost his birthright when he valued a plate of pottage more than his lifetime right. His younger brother Jacob (Israel) to whom he sold it retained the blessing and passed it onto his descendants.

Sin is such a bad stain that no fuller soap can wash it off. Thank God for the blood of His son Jesus that blots away the sins of all penitent sinners. The law is given to warn and save “…the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, manslayers”(1 Timothy 1:9).
Any youth who delays may lose the chance to be cleansed before eternity of hopelessness sets in. As a Christian, you must not toy with your present salvation rather grow in grace and commitment to the Lord. Only those who keep their garments of righteousness spotless shall experience the final salvation (Matthew 24:12, 13). Watch and pray that you may remain pure.
