Reading from Psalm 51.

“Hide your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me” (Psalm 51:9-10)

Psalm 51 is a prayer asking God to cleanse the sin from the author. It acknowledges that we fall short, that we will sin, but also asks God to forgive. Asking God to renew us and make us pure.

This is no easy task. The temptation to sin is all around us each and every day.

But God, in His grace, forgives over and over again. When we allow God to cleanse us, we do change our ways. When we experience the grace of God in our lives, we cannot help be humbled and awed by what God has done for us.
