• “I have learned that in every circumstance that comes my way, I can choose to respond in one of two ways: I can whine or I can worship” – Nancy DeMoss

Washed By Nancy Leigh DeMoss 04/06/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Around your house does it seem like “washing up” never ends?

“As soon as I finish washing up after breakfast, it’s time to dirty more dishes at lunch.”

Nancy: It’s been that way for thousands of years. We even read about it in stories of the Old Testament tabernacle.

Before he could enter the Holy Place, the priest had to offer an animal sacrifice for his sin. Then he would move to a bronze basin and wash his hands. He returned to that basin throughout the day because he kept needing to wash.

That’s a picture of our relationship with God. Like that priest, we need a sacrifice for our sins. Jesus made that ultimate sacrifice on the cross. But also like that priest, our hands get dirty. We’ve been made right with God, yet we still sin.

That’s why we need to be washed by the Word of God, over and over again. Are you letting His Word cleanse your heart each day?
