40 Days: Day 40 (Yom Kippur)

We have come to the Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur. Rejoice in the banishment of all ungodliness due to your thorough attention to repentance. And take this encouragement with you:

“In conclusion, brothers, focus your thoughts on what is true, noble, righteous, pure, lovable, or admirable, on some virtue or on something praiseworthy. Keep doing what you have learned and received from me, what you have heard and seen me doing; then the God who gives shalom will be with you.”

(Philippians 4:8-9, CJB)

“Create in me a clean heart, O God; renew in me a resolute spirit.”

(Psalm 51:10, CJB)
