Hyssop is a plant that was used in the Bible for purification ritualt. It was first mentioned in the Bible in the Passover ritual. They used it to sprinkle the blood on the doors and doorposts in obedience to the command of God.
Hyssop was also used to cleanse those with leprosy, or others who were unclean, as well as to purify homes with mildew, and purify water. It was described in 1 Kings 4:33 by Solomon.Is it any wonder David wanted to be cleansed with hyssop?
We should desire the same in order to remain pure before both God and the ones we are to teach.The visual of God cleansing us with hyssop, applying the blood of Christ in our lives, is just so breath-takingly awesome that I cannot describe how humble and grateful it makes me feel. I know I'm not deserving of it, yet He loves us enough to truly cleanse us and forgive us for my unrighteousness. And when we're all clean, the truth and wisdom He desires for us is much easier to receive and plant. He desires to give us truth and wisdom in the inmost parts.
"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly...." Colossians 3:16
It just seems easier to get it in our hearts without all the grime of the world and the flesh lurking on our skin.
Wash us whiter than snow, Lord. Sweep out any impurities or moral decay that we have allowed to creep in. Purify us so that we may stand clean before You. Please help us to keep our eyes on You, honoring You, living for You moment by moment, and living a life that is clean and pure. Thank You for hyssop and for the Blood of the Lamb and His resurrection power! In Jesus' Name, Amen.
Another re-run. I'll start writing again soon.
