“Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me.” Psalm 51:10 [See also Ezekiel 11:19-20.]

This petition will be fulfilled if earnestly presented in the name of our Redeemer, and surely the object of the petition is unspeakably important. “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God” (Matthew 5:8).

In regard to justification, this is completed by Christ’s obedience unto death.

In regard to sanctification, our hearts, though the subjects of it, are in their best state such that we have a continual need to pray, “Create in me a clean heart.”

O Lord, may Your blood and Spirit cleanse and sanctify me thoroughly from all my sins, that I may be purified and made meet for the Master’s use and may at length sit down with Him in His kingdom. Oh for a clean heart and a clean life, that Jesus may be glorified!
