Proverbs of a 35 yr old man.
It would be foolish to clean in the dark because you would leave alot of dirt behind. Turn the light on so you don't miss a spot. In the same way, you can't spiritually clean up your life in the darkness of sin. Start living in the light of righteousness so you can start seeing Jesus cleansing your life right now. Oh how he washes with hyssop until I am clean and whiter than snow. He creates in me a clean heart and renews a stedfast spirit within me. If we stay in fellowship with the light the blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sin.
