We need Scrubbing Power
→ Bathroom soap scum.. ← that stuff you always try to scrub and scrub – what a battle! I think I get tennis elbow sometimes. Boy, I wish it would help develop muscles.
What is soap scum, I mean really – isn’t soap suppose to make things clean? Not making us clean more! Also, my hands are always dry and the smell – lovely smell of Ajax or Scrubbing Bubbles.
I bet you didn’t know we have soap scum on us. Yep, just think of it as a blemish that we try to scrub off our self-image. Over time, that scum becomes hard to clean. One day, we wake up and we have layers upon layers. How can we overcome that yucky impossible to come off image?
Let’s look at Jesus. He has the arm power to scrub us clean. He doesn’t care how much is on us. He has the power to clean us. With the gift of grace – we have our personal Ajax. We see ourselves as dirty souls. As much as we want to sweep it under the rug – it is still there. He makes us new again.
Let Jesus renew that shiny beautiful soul you have.
Romans 6: 4
Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
1 Peter 1:3
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.”
Everyday – He gives us a gift of being renewed and remember what He did for us.
Allow yourself to have a beautiful soul.
But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ— by grace you have been saved—and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
