Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
(Psalms 51:10 (KJV))
Is that your desire? Do you wish for God to create a clean heart within you? Do you long for the things that are of God, or do you only pay “lip service” to God and do whatever you want to the rest of the time.
Acknowledging God does not make you righteous. Acknowledging that Jesus is the only begotten Son of God does not make you a Christian. Satan and his legions acknowledge both of these facts, yet, they continue to do whatever they desire in their sinful, arrogant and prideful hearts. You could even say that they have dirty hearts, for they do exactly opposite of what God desires. Their spirits are evil and bad.
Take a look at yourself. Do you follow after God in all things? Do you desire what God desires? What is the condition of your heart and spirit?
