Create in Me a Clean Heart Part V
Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Make me hear joy and gladness, that the bones You have broken may rejoice. Hide Your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities. Psalm 51:7-9
There is only one remedy for our sins, transgressions and iniquities, the cleansing blood of a spotless Lamb! David knew well that the sacrifice of an animal's life and the sprinkling of its blood on the mercy seat by the High Priest would wash away his sins. No matter what he had done, his sins would be forgiven.
People have a problem believing that God's mercy, being so great can forgive even the most heinous of sins, but its true, if Adolf Hitler had in his last moments repented and cried out for mercy, God would have forgiven his murder of six million Jews and saved his evil soul from damnation. That is why there are no good people in Heaven, only forgiven ones!
Jesus Christ is our sacrifice for all of our sins, a perfect Lamb unblemished without sin sent by the Father to forgive and cleanse those willing to confess and repent of their sinful lives to receive salvation and eternal redemption. The Lord Jesus had sin imputed to Him on our behalf, whom the punishment was due and stood in for us on the cross to redeem us from the wrath of God!
Knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver and gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. I Peter 1:18,19
Your servant in Christ, Tim Laughlin
