Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;
Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
The value of stripping experiences from God lies in its power to detach us from life's passing interests and to throw us back upon eternity (where we belong). It serves to empty our earthly vessels and temporal desires and prepare us for more of the Life and deeper indwelling of the Holy Spirit.
The further filling with the Spirit, then, requires that we give up our all, that we undergo an inward death, that we rid our hearts of that centuries-old accumulation of Adamic trash and open all rooms to the heavenly Guest.
The Holy Spirit is God's purifying messenger to us, bringing the water and the fire that will make us white as snow. Let us trust Him, let us obey Him, let us receive Him.
"Holy Spirit, thoroughly cleanse my desires, so all I want is you."
