"Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water." Heb. 10:22
It amazes me that as a Christian, a follower of Jesus with a "relationship with Him" that my sin still has such a hold on me, it still covers me like that fine layer of dirt blown in through the little cracks of the windows. I still need confession, forgiveness and cleansing on a daily basis. I still need a Savior. "In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness." Heb. 9:22 I am thankful that my sin is always before me and that because it is always before me I am in a place to see my need of salvation, my need of my Savior and of forgiveness...continual and never ending. One of my favorite singers, Derek Webb once noted so well that the best thing that could happen to us is that our sin would be broadcast on the evening news for all to see. Then we'd all be free to stop hiding our sin and be free to live in the cleansing power of the blood of Jesus.
