This is worth memorizing!!!
"Since we have these promises, dear friends,
let us purify ourselves from everything
that contaminates body and spirit,
perfecting holiness out of reverence for God."
Purifying ourselves is a twofold action; turning away from sin, and turning toward God. Perfecting holiness, means that the Corinthians were to have nothing to do with paganism. They were to make a clean break with their past and give themselves to God alone. We should be doing the same, making a clean break from worldly entrapments and dedicating ourselves to the service of the Lord.
