Romans 13:11–14 (ESV)
Fulfilling the Law through Love
11 Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed. 12 The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light. 13 Let us walk properly as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and sensuality, not in quarreling and jealousy. 14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.

It is time to clean house with anything that we do that is not in line with God’s will.  It is time to wake up.  “So then let us cast off the works of darkness (evil) and put on the armor of light.  Paul gives us a check list of things to stay out of: orgies, drunkenness, sexual immorality, sensuality, quarreling and jealousy.”  The problem is that the world pushes these things on people.  Even the church is under assault in these issues.  Paul is liken this to it’s time to clean the Temple like Jesus did.

I pray: O Lord, help me to clean out unhealthy and unspiritual ways from my life.  Help e to put on the armor of light and to walk in your ways.  Forgive me when I fail.  Amen.
