Last week as I was cleaning my upstairs bathroom and I accidental spilled some toilet bowl cleaner with bleach on me. I got it on a cheap pair of shorts (phew!) and the rug.
Instantly the color disappeared from my brown shorts and the beige rug (such exciting colors ;-) )!
Even in my...oh I can't believe I just spilled bleach on me...moment, I realized that's what our sins are to God!
"Come now, let us reason together," says the LORD.
"Though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red as crimson,
they shall be like wool."
God pours bleach on your sins. Praise God!
