Our eternal salvation is the most important thing in this life. It doesn’t matter what we have accomplished if we lose our souls in Hell; we lose it all. Jesus says in Matthew 16:26, “For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?” Nothing in this world is worth losing our soul over.

Clean hands refers to outward, practical holiness (Job 9:30; Psa. 18:20; Isa. 58:711). To wash in water with Pilate is nothing (Mt. 27:24), but to wash in innocency is all-important (Psa. 26:6).
