Maybe it’s the Mom in me, but I really like things to be clean. I think you would probably agree that whether it’s our house, our clothes, or even our car, we feel better once things are washed and put in order.
We can spend a lot of time, effort, and money making sure the things around us are spotless. But how often do you and I evaluate our heart and conscience to see if we are clean on the inside?
Are you clean?
Have you ever stopped to think about how God sees you? The Bible tells us that God “does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart” (1 Samuel 16:7). When He looks at your heart—at the real you—what does He see? He has inspected the words, deeds, and thoughts of every person and reached the conclusion that: “There is none righteous, no, not one … all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:10,23).
You may be saying, “How could God think I am not clean? I’m basically a good person. I’ve never hurt anybody.” But what we need to realize is that our definition of “clean” is not the same as God’s. No matter how hard we try to be decent and moral, “we are all like an unclean thing, And all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags” (Isaiah 64:6). Unless we are made perfectly spotless, we cannot stand in God’s holy presence (Revelation 21:27).
Who can make us clean?
If you have kids, have you ever asked them to clean their room—or the mess they made in the kitchen—only to be disappointed with the results? To get the job done right, we have to step in. That’s a picture of what God has done for us. He knows that we can’t make ourselves clean, so in His great love and mercy He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to redeem and rescue us.
Jesus, who was declared to be “a lamb without blemish and without spot” (1 Peter 1:19), was uniquely qualified to pay the penalty for our sin. The sinless One became sin for us when He suffered and died on the cross. Jesus “bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness” (1 Peter 2:24). He “loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood” (Revelation 1:5).
Do you want to be clean?
Only God can wash away the dirt and filth and stain of sin. Listen to His offer: “Come now, and let us reason together,” says the Lord, “though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool” (Isaiah 1:18).
The Bible tells us: “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). Jesus did all the work for you when He died on the cross and rose again. All you need to do is accept the free gift He offers. Put your trust in Jesus Christ today.
“Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out” (Acts 3:19).
