By Request, ‘Create in Me a Clean Heart’

Linda asked for this: Create in Me a Clean Heart, by Keith Green. It ought to sound familiar: “Create in me a clean heart, and renew a right spirit within me,” Psalm 51:10–the Psalm David wrote in repentance for his terrible sin in lusting for Bathsheba and arranging for her husband to be killed, so he could take her.

God’s word tells the truth, even when it hurts. Because only the truth can set us free.


‘Create in Me a Clean Heart’

Create in Me a Clean Heart is taken from Psalm 51–the Psalm David wrote when he repented the terrible sin he had committed in taking Uriah the Hittite’s wife, Bathsheba, and arranging for Uriah to be killed in battle: adultery plus murder. This is what the human heart does when it rebels against its Maker and Redeemer. And only God by Jesus Christ can cleanse it.

The Frolicking Sheep

Odd that the only pet mentioned in the Bible is a little ewe lamb that a poor man raised by hand and cuddled in his bed–only to have it taken away from him by a rich man who wanted it for dinner. When King David heard about that, he ordered the execution of the rich man: only then to learn that this was a parable that Nathan was telling him to make him understand how gravely he had sinned in order to rob Uriah the Hittite of his wife, Bathsheba. (2 Samuel, Chapter 12)

We don’t think of sheep as pets, but certainly the one in this video acts like he’s somebody’s pet. I had no idea a sheep could be so merry. A pet like this would be very easy to love.
