• “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

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?
