If we keep our hearts and minds clean our lives will be clean too.
Keep focused on what really matters in life. So often we get so sidetracked by things in our life (Ex. School, sports, friends, technology) We loose sight of what is really going to mean something in the end. We must keep our eyes focused on God and things of Him. If we do our lives won't "rust" or fall apart. They'll be clean and pure. I want to live my life as clean as possible but I know I can not do that in my own power. If I do I'll fail daily. We must put our faith in God because through Him and only Him will we win victory over sin in our lives.
God doesn't give us what we can handle. He helps us handle what we have been given.We won't be able to overcome our lives "rusting out" on our own but if we ask God and diligently follow him he will protect and guide us! We just got to give him our heart.
2Tim 2:22 - Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
