I was in the store the other day looking for some soap, and I was amazed at how many different
products there are just to help us keep ourselves sqeakey clean..
For instance, here's an old-fashioned bar of soap. And here's some liquid soap. (That’s for
people who are too lazy to work up a lather with a bar of soap!) And here’s some shampoo for
cleaning your hair. Wow, there must be a hundred kinds of shampoo! And here's some hand
sanitizer you can use to get the germs off your hands.
Of course, all these things are great for cleaning the outside of your body, but what about
cleaning the inside? How do we clean the sin from our heart? Soap won’t do it. Neither will
shampoo or hand sanitizer. Nope. To clean the sin from your heart you need a very special
cleaner. You need this: (Bring out special box.) “God’s Super-Duper Heart Cleaner.” It's
guaranteed to wash away sin, and it’s the only thing that works.
But God’s Super-Duper Heart Cleaner is not available in stores. That means you can't buy it at
Stop and Shop or Star Market. You can’t even buy it at Walmart! You know why? Because it’s
free! That’s right. God gives it to us for free!
Would you like to see what's inside? Let me open the box…(Take out flash card.) What does
that say? That's right, Jesus washes away our sin. 1 John 1:7 says, “The blood of Jesus Christ
his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” (KJV)
Boy, I'm sure glad it's free! And I’m sure glad God gave us Jesus, aren't you?
Let's pray about that: Heavenly Father, we know that Jesus is the only one who can wash away
our sin, so we thank you so much for giving him to us. We thank you and we praise you every
day in Jesus’ holy name. Amen.
