Daily Devotional with Pastor Jon

September 23

And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Take the Levites from among the children of Israel, and cleanse them. And thus shalt thou do unto them, to cleanse them: Sprinkle water of purifying upon them, and let them shave all their flesh, and let them wash their clothes, and so make themselves clean.

Numbers 8:5–7

Although Moses sprinkled water on the priests, they were to shave themselves. The first part of their cleansing was passive, the second part required their participation. So too, although I am clean positionally, I must participate in my cleansing practically. “How shall a young man cleanse his ways?” David asked. “By taking heed to the Word” (see Psalm 119:9). “Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against Thee” (Psalm 119:11).

Positionally, I’m being cleansed every day by the blood of Jesus Christ. But practically, there’s a bunch of sin in my life and the only way it will be worked out is by the working in of the Word. I’ve got to wash myself in the water of the Word, take in the Scriptures, meditate on the Word, listen to the Word, and learn the Word.
