Cleansing the teeth

Every day there are some important things we do to the human body to keep it clean. We wash our face and our bodies, we brush our teeth each day.

How would you feel if you woke up a few morning and never brush your teeth or even take a complete shower? i know you would feel total discomfort; not only in this unclean body but in your mind.

Let me focus a little bit on the brushing of the teeth. It is recommended by dentist to brush our teeth three times a day. Some dentist recommend after each meals. They even gave us tips of the consequences, of not following up on these procedural instructions:

  • Cavities
  • Bad breathe
  • plaque that causes gingivitis( gum infection)
  • decay

I want for a moment to focus on decay. Decay is a rot or decompose, decline in quality or power; and if there is no option on saving a bad tooth or teeth dentist would recommend extraction; meaning to pull out! take out! obtain by pressure. No one would enjoy losing a tooth but it happen through neglect.









Body and spirit negligence

Neglecting the body can cause bad odor, body bug as well as early aging etc. It is wise to take care of our bodies inside and out but we forget to cleanse one other thing each morning."Our Spirit." Just as the body need cleansing our spirit needs cleansing too, everyday. If not cleansing our self can cause build up of cavities, odors and unbearable repercussions, why would we think there are no consequences for neglecting our spiritual life. Well I've got news for you! There are similar repercussions, spiritual repercussions for not cleansing our spiritual lifestyle.

Your zest for life would decay, that is how suicides attack people who has no connection with God. The love in you can decay, this what causes murder, hatred and jealousy.. yes the wax cold heart of human beings started from a decompose spirit. Depression set a bed in your heart like sea moss and hide your joy. Worry would have made a dump on the place where truth and faith should dwell and you starting to become more negative when your positive character devalued.

You would find yourself in total darkness feasting on bitterness while anger barter your peace.I believe there are greater consequences for us when our spirit is neglected. All these repercussion does not take place overnight but with a continuation of neglect it will cause these complication in the spirit. You can live with losing a tooth but you can never live if you die in your sins because everlasting live is promised only to believers. (John 3 vs16-17)" FOR GOD SO LOVE THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY SON, THAT WHO EVER BELIEVES IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE. VS 17: FOR GOD DID NOT SEND HIS SON INTO THE WORLD TO CONDEMN US BUT THAT THE WORLD THROUGH JESUS CHRIST MIGHT BE SAVED."


SPIRITUAL CLEANSING

OK i know you are asking the question. How can i cleanse my spirit? I used soap to clean by body and toothpaste to clean my teeth but my spirit? God word is like a sharp lighten and its llke a two edged sword, his truth has never say God is here or there or reffers to God has he or she the bible says God is a spirit and they that worship him must worship him in spirt and in truth.

I say this so you would understand that only God can do the cleansing of our spirit but we have to do our part. Each morning we need to pray and ask God for forgiveness, weather we are born again or sinners, ask God to wash us thoroughly, ask him to wash our eyes what we see, wash our lips what we speak, wash our feet where we go and our hand what we do. Ask him to create in us a clean heart and renew a right spirit in us. Each time we pray we are in the spirit and we are making spiritual encounter with God. This type of prayer is a form of spiritual cleansing resisting the enemy from taking accommodation in the home where God should dwell; our hearts.

PRAYER

Search me o God and know my heart, try me and know my thoughts, see if there be any wicked ways in me, cleanse me of my sins and set me free. This simple!! or you can sing your prayer which ever way you choose you on the right track. Be bless!

sing a cleansing prayer
