Subject: Clean Up What You Mess Up
Scripture: Psalm 51: 1-11

My brothers and my sisters, in this text, David is saying to God, “Create in me(Him) oh Lord a clean heart and renew with me(Him) the right spirit.” When we go back into the deep recesses of our minds and take a look at clean, we need to understand what clean really means. Webster defines clean as being pure not dirty; free from contamination; undefiled. When you are corruptible you are unclean. And the Word of God says that He will not dwell in an unclean temple. Now the temple in question is not a building with four walls and a ceiling. No the temple is the church and the church is us. Therefore we must clean up the mess that is on the inside of us. All those holy clichés which try to rule the church; all those bodies trying to tell the pastor how to run the church. It is time for us to start cleaning house. Isaiah 40:31 it says, “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings as eagles. They shall run and not be weary and they shall walk and not faint.” You see my brothers and my sisters David knew that he had sinned against God. He had messed up! So David had to repent. He had to clean up what he messed up Mark 1:15 says, “the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.” Psalm gives expression to why David was a man after God’s own heart. He was not perfect. But he had a sensitivity to sin that few knew about. Notice especially the use of the first person singular: mine iniquity, my sin and my transgression and so on. The first two verses are an introductory petition rich with meaning in the use of four figures for forgiveness. After confessing His guilt, David (v. 3-6) prays for inner renewal and promises, thanksgiving and ministry (v.13-17). This passage clearly teaches that those who have failed God maybe restored to the service of God. Can you clean up what you have messed up? Starting all over again will be rough. Will you clean all this mess up? Brothers and sisters, make no mistake, Jesus is on his way. Before it is to late you need to clean up controlling nature that runs ramped in the house of God and all the lies, clean up the backbiting and cheating, clean up the fornicating and adulterous ways, clean up the stealing and dealing. Mark 7:15 says, “There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can be defiled him. But the things which come out of him those are they that defile a man. This simply means cleaning up what you messed up starts from within. You must dust those hidden corners of your heart. You must evaluate one’s self just as David did. Ask the Father to search me; to create in me a clean heart. David prayed take not they Holy Spirit from me (v.11) need never be offered by new testament saints, since the Holy Spirit indwells every Christian permanently (1 Cor. 6:19). My brothers and sisters, David’s cry here may reflect fear; not reality of losing the spirit and being rejected by God. Thus he ask God to restore the joy of his salvation, nor salvation itself. Isn’t God good saints. All you got to do is clean up all the mess!!!!!!
