During Spring cleaning we take time out to do a deep cleaning. We remove the clutter from our homes, clean stains from the driveway, even put another coat of paint on the garage. Is it safe to say that while we tackle these arduous chores, we meditate on cleansing our spirits as well?
The Bible says, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Romans 12:2 It takes work to renew our minds and with all the hustle and bustle of life, we many times need to slow down and make sure that we are focused on the things that really matter; kingdom living, holiness and sharing the good news of Christ with others. There are many scriptures that tell us how to keep our spirits focused on Christ. Meditate on the word day and night, think of things that are holy, pure and righteous, pray without ceasing, worship and fellowship amongst other believers and fast, reminding our bodies that we can not live by bread alone. We have much work to do.
