Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 30th October

Thorough Cleansing

Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and you shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, I will cleanse you. (Ezekiel 36:25)

What an exceeding joy is this! He who has purified us with the blood of Jesus will also cleanse us by the water of the Holy Spirit. God has said it, and so it must be, “You shall be clean.” Lord, we feel and mourn our uncleanness, and it is cheering to be assured by your own mouth that we shall be clean.

He will deliver us from our worst sins; these shall be so purged away as never to return. He will also cleanse us from all our idols; that which we have idolized shall either be broken from us or we shall be broken off from it.

It is God who speaks of what He Himself will do. Therefore is this word established and sure, and we may boldly look for that which it guarantees to us.
