offense and walk in a place of humility. As it says in the Word, ?Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it? (Proverbs 4:23). We need to not become judgmental of others as things are being exposed, rather, we should pray and intercede for them. We also need to examine our own heart and be careful; if we think we are standing strong, we need to be careful not to fall (1 Corinthians 10:12). Just as it is written in Matthew 5:8, ?Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.?
WALKING IN FREEDOM! When we are living with unconfessed sin in our life, it ultimately leads to bondage. We won?t experience the true freedom that Jesus conquered death to give us. Beloved, truly the Lord?s heart is for His Bride. I love the passage in Isaiah 1:8 that says, ??Come now, let us settle the matter,?says the Lord, ?Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.'? As we continue to allow His spotlight to shine upon anything that He chooses to reveal to us, and we allow the Lord to cleanse us through repentance, the end result will be glorious freedom!

WATCHMEN ON THE WALL The Lord is calling His people to be watchmen on the wall: to pray and intercede like never before! It says in the Word that, ?I will stand at my watch and station myself on the ramparts; I will look to see what he will say to me, and what answer I am to give to this complaint? (Habakkuk 2:1). The Lord is also urging us to take a step back and look at ourselves. Truly our lives should reflect His holiness! In order to be the pure and spotless Bride of Christ, we must remain in a place of intimacy with our Bridegroom. We are to be as the wise virgins in Matthew 25, and keep the oil burning in our lamps as we wait on Him. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven (Matthew 5:16). Do you remember the song, ?They Will Know We Are Christians by Our Love?? Well, this much is true! The world will know and recognize us by our fruit! We are called to be a lighthouse, a city on a hill that cannot be hidden (Matthew 5:14). All of creation is longing for the true Sons and Daughters of the King to be revealed!
