“But if an unclean person does not go through these cleansing procedures, he must be excommunicated from the community; he has desecrated the sanctuary of God.”
- This verse reminds me how unclean we humans are. We have a sin nature that runs deep. We are drawn to sin, have sinned, and continue to sin. There is no reason why we belong in heaven with God… other than that God loves us and decided to bestow his mercy on us through Jesus Christ.
I’m 25 today! I feel great. Last night I had dinner with an old friend and we discussed some of his relationship challenges. I felt honored that he wanted to talk to me about them… and it’s comforting to know that I’m not the only one who struggles with romantic relationships.
