“Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;  wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.”
Psalm 51:7


“Oh! rejoice in the richness of our salvation! When the Lord pardoned our sins, he did not pardon half of them, and leave some of them on the book—but with one stroke of the pen he gave a full receipt for all our debts.

When we went down into the fountain filled with blood, and washed, we did not come up half-clean, but there was no spot nor wrinkle upon us—we were white as snow.”

—Charles Spurgeon, “The Joy of Salvation”
