I love bleach. Cleaning the kitchen I love to take out the cleanser with bleach and sprinkle it out over the dirty, stained sink. And then like magic before my eyes, the ugly stains fade away and the sink is beautifully clean again.
So what is the solution for the dirty stains in our lives that come as a result of sin? Colossians puts it so well.
Colossians 2:13-14 And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.
And the place of cleansing is clearly stated. All of the ugliness of our sin was nailed to the cross and we are forgiven.
God paid so much for us. Sin is that ugly and He loves us that much.
