Nobody else can give you a clean heart but God. There’s one thing we need above everything else; it’s something we don’t talk about these days. We need a mighty avalanche of conviction of sin.
We’re living in an unprecedented day (when) evil is no longer evil. We’ve changed the terminology– iniquity is now infirmity; wickedness is now weakness; devilry is now deficiency.
A Roman Catholic priest startled us not very long ago by saying that for 25 years he had been sitting in the confessional, listening to the confessions of men and women. He said he heard (of) murders, rapes, adultery, and fornication. He met men and women who have broken every law of God and man with repetition. But never in 25 years had anyone ever confessed to be covetous. Covetousness! We wrap it up and call it ambition. We may call it business or something, but right down in the middle of those things is a rotten word called “covetousness.” Paul called it idolatry! (King) David had one of the most blessed experiences in the world, and the blessedness was that he was miserable about his sin.
