January 25, Nothing to Be Ashamed Of


Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin….Create in me a clean heart, O God.
—Psalm 51:2, 10
Let me venture an opinion here. Jesus was in harmony with nature in this world and I am of the opinion that the deeper our own Christian commitment becomes the more likely we will find ourselves in tune and in harmony with the natural world around us.

Brethren, I am not ashamed of his world—I am only ashamed of man’s sin. If you could take all of the sin out of this world, suddenly extract it, there would be nothing in all the world to be ashamed of and nothing to be afraid of. CES075-076
The heart of the Holy Spirit is intensely concerned in preserving us from every stain and blemish and bringing us into the very highest possibilities of the will of God. HS037
Tozer on the Holy Spirit.
