• “Faith’s most severe tests come not when we see nothing, but when we see a stunning array of evidence that seems to prove our faith vain.” – Elisabeth Elliot

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?

  • “I henceforth take Jesus Christ to be mine. I promise to receive Him as a husband to me. And I give myself to Him, unworthy though I am, to be His spouse. I ask of Him, in this marriage of spirit with spirit, that I may be of the same mind with Him — meek, pure, nothing in myself, and united in God’s will. And, pledged as I am to be His, I accept as part of my marriage portion, the temptations and sorrows, the crosses and the contempt which fell to Him. — Jeanne M.B. de la Mothe Guyon, Sealed with her ring.”

But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. — 1 Corinthians 2:14 (NKJV)
