“Hearts Made Clean” - Sermon Text: Mark 7:14-15 - Rev. Shayne Jonker
It is not what goes into us that makes us unclean, but it is what goes into us that makes us clean. Spiritual purity comes from outside of ourselves. It is found in the undeserved kindness and mercy of God in the death of His only begotten Son Jesus. Baptismal water poured on us; forgiving Words spoken into us; Christ’s Body and Blood fed to us. Those are what make the unclean clean. God alone can do it. God alone has done it.
