The Washing of the Hands

Washing of the hands

In the Bible, washing your hands is a metaphor for cleansing your sins. The Bible warns you to stay away from evil, unfaithfulness, and everything that causes you to be double-minded.

“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.” (James 4:8)

This is a stark reminder that we must also take time to evaluate ourselves and wash away anything that can be distancing us from God. When our hands are clean, everything we touch will be blessed!

“The Lord will command the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand, and He will bless you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you.” (Deut. 28:8)

Only we have the power to look within ourselves to see if anything has been contaminating our relationship with God.

If you want to renew your vows to be faithful to God, we invite you to join us this Wednesday where we will be partaking in The Washing of Hands for all those who want to remain faithful to God. For more information, call our 24-hour Helpline on 020 7686 6000.
