Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them.
-Water has been frequently used symbolising cleansing both physically & spiritually.
– In this text, the word of the Lord came to prophet Ezekiel & spoke regarding the restoration of Israelites. The same pattern is seen in Exodus 19:10, when the Israelites were told to bathe & wash their clothes in preparation to meet God.
Sprinkle clean water on us, Father that we may be cleansed from all our filthiness. Give us a heart of flesh so that we may always seek You first. Help us Holy Spirit in all our needs. Amen
