A Word From Dr. Stanley

July 2020

With Jesus, everyone gets a fresh start—we’re all born sinners in a broken world, but through faith in Jesus and the grace of God, we receive forgiveness and begin over as new creations in Christ. That being the case, have you wondered why Jesus told the disciples they were completely clean but needed to wash their feet (John 13:10)? The reason is that believers are forgiven yet still on a journey, so you must strive daily to walk in your new nature. I guarantee you’ll have some difficult days, but Jesus Himself is committed to your purity (Heb. 10:14), and it has precious results (Matt. 5:8). As you read these devotions, ask Him to help you love well and live holy. He’s always there to strengthen you.
