Passage: Leviticus 13:12-13

His Church Is Clean

…the plague from his head even to his foot…he shall pronounce him clean that hath the plague: it is all turned white: he is clean

(EXODUS 12:12-13)

[Beloved], how gracious was the Holy Spirit, thus, in shadow and in figure, to teach the church the leprous state she stood in before God, by reason of sin. And how very precious is Jesus our great High Priest brought forward to our view, thus appointed by God our Father, to whom the convinced sinner might shew himself and get freed from his leprosy. Teach me thou blessed teacher, in what a leprous state I was born by reason of sin. Give me to see that nothing but the fountain opened for sin and for uncleanness, in Jesus’s blood, can cleanse my soul. Lead me to Him by thy sweet influences, who alone can say, Fear not, for I AM thy great salvation. And when I am enabled to draw nigh His footstool, and to shew myself before Him, that He may search me and try me; when under the deepest conviction of misery, I cry to the depth of divine mercy; Jesus, master, have mercy on me, oh, do thou hear, and answer, and cleanse me from my leprosy.

And may I add, dearest Lord, this humble [request], and do thou in mercy grant it, that I may ever be found clothed in thy garments, and arrayed in thy covering. The Lord the Spirit give me strength to “…put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness” (EPHESIANS 4:22-24).
