Psalm 26:1-8

Declare me innocent, O LORD, for I have acted with integrity; I have trusted in the LORD without wavering. 2 Put me on trial, LORD, and cross-examine me. Test my motives and my heart.3 For I am always aware of your unfailing love, and I have lived according to your truth.4 I do not spend time with liars or go along with hypocrites.5 I hate the gatherings of those who do evil, and I refuse to join in with the wicked.6 I wash my hands to declare my innocence. I come to your altar, O LORD,7 singing a song of thanksgiving and telling of all your wonders.8 I love your sanctuary, LORD, the place where your glorious presence dwells.

Romans 6:20-23

20 When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the obligation to do right. 21 And what was the result? You are now ashamed of the things you used to do, things that end in eternal doom. 22 But now you are free from the power of sin and have become slaves of God. Now you do those things that lead to holiness and result in eternal life. 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.
