• “In case any are puzzled by the different translations from which I draw strength and help and delight, it is like this: In studying any object with the microscope we use different lenses and turn the mirror in various ways; each change brings out some new wonder and beauty. So it is for those who are not Greek or Hebrew scholars, and who use the work of scholars to open the meaning of the exhaustible Word–the Bible is richer than any single version can fully show.” – Amy Carmichael

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.

  • “But the misfortune is that people wish to direct God instead of resigning themselves to be directed by Him. We wish to take the lead, and to follow in a way of their own selection instead of submissively and passively following where God sees fit to conduct them. And hence it is, that many souls who are called to the enjoyment of God himself and mot merely to the gifts of God, spend all their lives in pursuing and in feeding on little consolations.” – Madame Guyon

Verse of the Day

No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. — 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NKJV)
