Him has washed us from sin

Revelation 1

v5

And from Jesus Christ, [who is] the faithful witness, [and] the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

It is a great joy to praise the Lord with a pure heart. It is a joy to know that your sins are forgiven, to have a clear conscience and a clean slate, and to have a hope for the future, being right with God. It is a joy to praise and worship Him, knowing it is the right thing to do, and being glad that you can be enabled to do the right thing.

We should remember that it is by Jesus' death, and the shedding of His blood on the cross, that we can be forgiven and saved. We should repent from our sins, even when it is hard, because it is definitely well worth while to be reconciled to the Lord. Then we should thank, praise and worship the Lord out loud, with a pure heart, because it is such a joy to do so.
