This is an old blog that I started in 2006. I keep it because it has a lot of historical data and people still come here. As of September 2016, no new updates will be made here. All new blog posts and writing/publishing related news will be posted over on my new site at www.jenniferhudsontaylor.net.

Word of Inspiration - How to Wash Ourselves Clean God's Way

"Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; Put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes. Cease to do evil, Learn to do good; Seek justice, Rebuke the oppressor; Defend the fatherless, Plead for the widow." (Isaiah 1:16-17)

We wash ourselves clean by repenting of our sins. We put away our evil deeds by avoiding temptation, staying away from people, places and things that tempt us. We seek justice by doing what is right. We rebuke the oppressor by rejecting Satan's lies and deceptive ideas. We speak the Word of God back to him just as Jesus did in the desert. We defend the fatherless and plead for the widow by not turning our heads and pretending they don't exist--that taking care of our own families is doing our part--our only responsibility. We do more for others who need God's help since we are God's hands.
