Pr. 20:9: “Who can say, “I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin?”
Let me give you the answer: no one.
Last night I dreamed that I was preaching about God’s faithfulness. I was on fire. People were responding. The Holy Spirit was moving. Less than an hour later, I was at sneaking into the home of a missionary, stealing a very valuable tropical plant.
Isn’t that just like reality?
We are all sinners. It’s not just me. It’s not just you.
It’s only the blood of Jesus Christ that washes those sins away. Once that happens, the Lord no longer chooses to remember them.
So, while we strive to live a holy life that glorifies and honors the Lord, we must remember that we will never be perfect. We don’t need to allow satan to beat us down, constantly reminding us that we are sinners. God made provision for that already!
There is a reason we need a Savior. It is only through Him that we are saved. If we keep our eyes on Him, we will follow Him into eternity.
