A Fountain of Cleansing
On that day there shall be a fountain opened for the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, to cleanse them from sin and uncleanness.This is the Gospel: that on the day that Jesus of Nazareth was betrayed into the hands of tyrants and murderers, on the day that this innocent man was scourged, beaten, mocked, and crucified--on that day a fountain was opened not only for the house of David but for every tribe and nation. Herein lies the hope of all. In this fountain of cleansing, the inconceivable has become a living breathing reality. They struck the shepherd, but His defeat has become our victory. Repair to the fountain, you who are sinking under a burden of hopelessness, and hear Him say, "Your sins are forgiven. Go in peace."
