Did you know….

James 1:21-Wherefore lay apart all filthiness an superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.

The Greek word apotithimi is used frequently in the New Testament. A very colorful word that describes someone taking off their dirty cloths at the end of the day. In other words, Paul was saying, “You need to make a choice! Will you take off those stinky, dirty, filthy garments from your body (life)? Don’t just throw them down, so that they might be picked up again. Burn them! Destroy them! Get rid of them! Be clothed with righteousness, Christ’s righteousness.
