Create in Me a New Heart

After reading this morning, Spurgeon's morning devotion, it was about a man who was about to die, and the pastor asked him what he wanted said at his funeral. He responded with Psalm 51:1-2. After reading Psalm 51, I was moved. This was the psalm that David wrote after his affair with Bathsheba. When Nathan confronted David with his sin, and David realized in the short time of the affair, he had broken just about all the 10 Commandments, he fell on his knees, and said in verse four, "Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so that you may be justified in your words and blameless in your judgment."  It is something that we don't see too much in today's moral relativistic society.  He took action by acknowledging that it was against God, he had sinned.  It wasn't his mother, father, his friends, his job, or the number of things we like to hang our blame on.  Thank God for his saving grace, and mercy.  So with that, I go back to Psalm 51:10, "Create in me a clean heart, O God,  and renew a right spirit within me", Amen.
