Out of love, Jesus invites us, welcomes us, and receives us just as we are. Out of love, He also begins the work of transforming our lives into something much better—something that more accurately represents our identity as a child of God. As we begin anew with Him certain things no longer suit us—things such as gossip, hatred, bitterness, unforgiveness, rage, envy, bad habits, and foul language. Jesus looks at these things that no longer have a place in our lives and says, “out it goes.” Getting rid of the old, makes room for the new—things such as righteousness, goodness, kindness, and purity have a clean heart in which to flourish. So when Jesus decides to purge something out of your life, remember that it's for your own good and consider the abundant blessings that will follow when you actually let go, then in agreement with Him, firmly say “out it goes.”
Ephesians 4:30-32, “And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you."
