Clothe yourselves with the new self, created according to the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness. (Ephesians 4:24 NRSV)

When I did a research project in Israel during college, one of the places I visited was the wailing wall. The wailing wall is the closest you can get to the place where the old Temple used to be. The story is told that people at the wailing wall would start praying at one end of the wailing wall and make their way to where the Holy of Holies in the Temple used to be. And when the people would pray at the wailing wall their confession of sins would not bother them too much, but the closer they got to the Holy of Holies the more aware of their sins they became and they would weep.

The closer we are to God, the more conscious we are of our need for confession and holiness.

Dear Jesus, live more closely in my today, so that I will become more holy. In your name, Amen.
