Psalm 51:10 Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
When God first saves you, he “cleanses you out”, he puts a holy spirit inside of you. He creates something NEW: you are born, again.
Yet why do so many Christians doubt God’s goodness when it comes to his “re-creation” or “re-newing”. When God can cleanse you when you get saved, surely he can clean you again, and renew you once you are saved. Somehow we think that once we are saved we cannot be cleansed another time. We got to stay 100% pure, or else!
This is moving from grace back to law. But when we rely on God’s grace, we know he is able to renew us, restore what was lost, recover what is broken. God is good. All the time. Today, let his mercy wash over you anew!
