After an evening meeting that followed a dinner in the home of a young minister, a group returned to that home for a time of fellowship. The young wife began to work hard in the kitchen cleaning up after dinner. She said, “I hate to come down to a dirty kitchen in the morning, so I always clean it up at night before I sleep.”
At the end of every day, we must come to the Lord and let Him clean up absolutely everything in our whole life. “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” ( 1 John 1:9 ). This cleans up the kitchen; this cleans up the bedroom; this cleans up the living room; everything is ready for the next day. We open our eyes in fellowship with Him and smile. There are no hangovers from the previous day to mar the beginning. All is in fellowship, all is clean; God has done it, and the new day lies before us.
