sprinkledHebrews 10:22 (NIV) 22 let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. 1 Thessalonians 4:1-11 (NIV) Living to Please God:  " 4 As for other matters, brothers and sisters, we instructed you how to live in order to please God, as in fact you are living.   Now we ask you and urge you in the Lord Jesus to do this more and more. 2 For you know what instructions we gave you by the authority of the Lord Jesus.  3 It is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; 4 that each of you should learn to control your own body[a] in a way that is holy and honorable, 5 not in passionate lust like the pagans, who do not know God; 6 and that in this matter no one should wrong or take advantage of a brother or sister.[b] The Lord will punish all those who commit such sins, as we told you and warned you before. 7 For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. 8 Therefore, anyone who rejects this instruction does not reject a human being but God, the very God who gives you his Holy Spirit.   9 Now about your love for one another we do not need to write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love each other. 10 And in fact, you do love all of God’s family throughout Macedonia. Yet we urge you, brothers and sisters, to do so more and more, 11 and to make it your ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you,"

Clearly we all need to be SPRINKLED WITH GOD'S LOVE AND TRUTH AS FOLLOWS:

S - Set your minds on things above where Christ is seated at the right hand of God

P - Put away the earthly things that turn your love from Him

R - Rid yourselves of those things that turn you away (get rid of the fruitless things)

I - In Christ

N - not what we do, but Christ in us through His Spirit

K - through his knowledge through his word and the kindness that he gives us to do to others as we would have done to us

L - Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly

E - Every Christian should clothe ourselves with God's Fruit (Read Galatians 5)

D - In whatever you do, in word or deed, do it all for Jesus

Be blessed,
