“Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.” Psalm 51:2
“The blood of Jesus Christ … cleanses us from all sin.” 1 John 1:7
Under the ceremonial law all things were purged with blood, and without shedding of blood there was no remission; thus it is impossible that any one sin should be taken away, except by the blood of Christ Jesus. May this teach me the heinousness of sin, keep my heart humble, and my conscience tender. For how dreadful must the stain of sin be, since nothing but the blood of Christ can wash it out!
Blessed be God for opening this fountain, and keeping it open day and night for the vilest sinners. May my polluted soul be daily washed in it, and so receive both peace and strength. Ever remember that whatever God does, He does perfectly.
- If God washes us, it is thoroughly.
- If He cleanses us, He makes us white.
- And when the Holy Spirit teaches, He always leads the soul to seek thorough work.
Thorough sanctification, as well as complete justification. To be thoroughly cleansed from filth within, as well as covered completely with the robe of righteousness without.
My soul, are you seeking a thorough work? A thorough change of heart — of life? Look well to this.

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15). When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.
When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.
By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
