Saying goodbye to another year is a time most of us get reflective. We reflect on what was and what is and what is to come. Naturally, the idea of reembracing came to mind, and we come to a close with our purity series this year.

After all we’ve pondered and revealed, it seems only fitting that we would talk about how we can reembrace purity in current culture.

It seems that we are at a crossroads in our conversation that leads to, “what choice do we make for ourselves when it comes to purity?” and “how do we reembrace purity in healthy, holy, life-giving, and productive ways?

It’s a good question to ask. And really, has the church asked it before?

Marked Ministry has reflected this month on our own reembracing journey and has come up with a collection of thoughts. Some of these are on restorative joy, wellness, and slowing down to focus on God. Others are focusing on the gift of purity this season while others look to a new year with a fresh perspective or purity.

This year’s theme has been a labor of love and our final gift this Christmas and New Year are some articles that we hope will spark you to reembrace purity in your own life.

We pray that what we shared with you this year prompted your spiritual journey through purity. That it cleared up some misconceptions. And, that it also healed some past hurt and incorrect views of God.

Overall, we hope this year generated a fresh and vibrant relationship with God built not on rules and obedience but on love and an inward desire to truly walk in a lifestyle of purity in light of who God is to us.

If any of this series this 2022 has impacted your life in a positive way, please let us know by shooting an email or a comment our way. We love hearing how Marked Ministry is making a mark in your everyday and overall perspective of God and purity. And please, don’t forget to share our magazine with others whom you feel would be blessed, enlightened, and encouraged by it as we talk about faith and culture.

For now, we want to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and yours. We hope your holiday is blessed and that you will continue to make your mark in this world in 2023.
