• “Jesus died as He had lived: praying, forgiving, loving, sacrificing, trusting, quoting Scripture. If I die as I have lived, how will I die?” – Nancy Leigh DeMoss

Unclean by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 08/25/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: When we see God more clearly, it illuminates our sinfulness. God moved in a great way in Ireland in the 1800s. One eyewitness said that conviction of sin became so intense that sinners were compelled to cry out in agony. They often cried out, “Unclean, unclean.”

The Bible tells us that’s what lepers had to cry when they came near people. One leper encountered Jesus and said, “If You choose, You can make me clean.” This man knew how desperate he was. Jesus responded by saying, “I do choose. Be made clean.”

He’s willing to say the same thing to us, if we’re willing to admit how unclean we really are. When we realize that, we can better appreciate the sacrifice Jesus made for us on the cross.

Would you ask God to revive your heart? Ask Him to show you areas that aren’t clean, and then confess those to Him with a broken heart.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “By confessing sin we gather strength to resist it; thereby the enemy of our souls is foiled, the conscience is kept tender, the heart is sanctified, and the blood of Jesus becomes increasingly precious. Let us constantly flee to the cleansing fountain!” – Mary Winslow
