"If by life rightly led, you wash away the mud that has been put on your heart, the Godlike beauty will again shine out in you." - Gregory of Nyssa
The words of Gregory reminded me that we all have the imprint of God upon our lives, but the troubles we face, the sins we commit and the struggles we endure, all throw mud onto our hearts. When we realise this, we need to ask the Spirit of God to wash away all the dirt and help us to shine again.
"Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water." - Hebrews 10:22
Living in Grace
