My wife really likes a certain cleaning product that she uses around the house. I don’t want to get into product endorsement here, but this household helper really does a magical job of erasing dirt, grime and stains that have built up on fixtures and appliances. Things that have become filthy can be made sparkling clean once again.
Our lives become tarnished because of the sin that we just can’t seem to avoid. Though our intentions are good—usually—our sinful nature often gets the best of us, and we become stained as a result. We need the blood of Jesus to make us clean.
Thankfully, the cleansing power of Jesus Christ is constantly at work in the lives of believers, taking away our sins and making us look sparkling clean in the eyes of God.
“He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.”—1 John 2:2.
