Daily Devotion: A Clean Heart

Bible Reading: Psalm 51:1-12

Key Verse: Verse 10 – “Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

Key Words: Create in me a clean heart

How many times have you said to your children or how many times did your parents say to you, “Wash your hands”? If I heard it once, I heard it hundreds of times.

But how many of us tell our children, “Wash your heart…keep your heart clean!” I doubt if any of us do, but we all should. A clean heart is much better for you than clean hands.

Each time we partake of the Lord's Supper we remind ourselves that the elements are symbolic of what Christ has done for us. New research accentuates this symbolism. Dr. Leroy Creasy of Cornell University has identified a chemical in grapes that the Journal of Applied Cardiology says reduces the risk of heart disease. “Resveratrol” lowers cholesterol in humans and is found in Concord grape juice. Now as we drink a substance that helps cleans the physical heart of life-threatening impurities, we can be reminded in a new way that it is the blood of Christ that cleanses our spiritual hearts of sin’s deadly effects.

What to do:
✞ Remember, it is better to eat with dirty hands than to live with a dirty heart.
