And You have fulfilled Your promise, For You are righteous. We aren’t. Today we want to look at what happens when hearts are cleansed, and guilt is released. The record of what the people DID offers us a pattern for action WHEN GOD CONVICTS YOU OR I OF SIN.

The need for outer comfort is dwarfed by the need for resolution with God.

We want to feel the release of cleansing, and sing the song of the man or woman free from remorse.
