The Problem
Too many Christians are defeated by:

  • the uncleanness of materialism
  • the pollution of sexual temptation
  • a general lack of holiness & fire for the things of the Lord

It's normal to feel unclean in the presence of God. But once we're cleansed, we should be ready for service (Isa 6:1-9; 2 Tim 2:19-22). Yet at times we all come short in the area of discipleship.

With this in mind, the goal of this series accords with Paul's intention in writing to Timothy (1 Tim 1:5-7). We all need three precious things -- without which we may shipwreck our faith (1 Tim 1:18-19).

  • a pure heart
  • a good conscience
  • a sincere faith

Seekers are attracted to God when they see a truly sacrificial spiritual life (Rom 12:1-2; John 12:32). While none of us wants to shipwreck our faith, the disaster normally begins with (greater and greater) moral compromises.

The Plan
Get ready for an entire month of focus on

  • Cleanliness in the OT (Psalms, Proverbs, Isaiah)
  • Cleanliness in the NT (James, Peter, John, Paul)
  • Walking in the Light – a terribly misunderstood concept
  • OT & NT lepers
  • NT exorcisms
  • OT & NT reanimations
  • Jesus’ (unique) resurrection
  • Purity and Transformation in the history of Christianity

Hence the full title of the 31-podcast series:
CLEAN IN '17 – Purity, Cleansing, Leprosy, Exorcism, & Reanimation.
