The blood of Christ.

I spent most of today with a power-washer, dealing with the slabs and monoblocks that cover our fairly long driveway, and the slabs the form the patio in front of the summer house, at the back of the garden, as well as the slabs beside it.

It's not the most enjoyable of tasks, as the muck and moss sprays up all over the place - including over one's jeans (wellie-boots only protect so much!).  I do have an attachment that is supposed to confine the aforementioned muck - but it doesn't seem to do as good a job with cleaning the slabs/blocks!

It was as I watched the total transformation of the slabs/blocks from grubby, same-coloured dirty, surrounded by all of that moss and other gunge; to clean, distinguishable (colour-wise), bright slabs/blocks that I found myself thinking how good it would be if I could purchase a power-wash that would deal with my sins in the same way!  How wonderful it would be if all that I had to do was stand under such an amazing power-wash, and be transformed from the grubby, sinful, person that I am into a clean, fresh, person!

Then I remembered that, of course, I do have access to such a power-wash!  It's called the blood of Jesus and, according to the apostle John, "... the blood of Jesus, His Son, cleanses us from all sin." (I John 1:7)

Of course, those slabs and blocks will not, now, remain clean forever!  I have to attend to that job on a fairly regular basis.  And, similarly, I have to seek God's cleansing every single day.  But I know that, because I have made that eternal-life-giving commitment to the Christ, that the cleansing is always available to me.

The hymnwriter put it like this: "There is power, power, wonder-working power in the blood of the Lamb.  There is is power, power, wonder-working power in the precious blood of the Lamb."   And that cleansing power is available to all who come to Him, in repentance and faith.

With an offer like that, who would want to be a dirty paving slab?!
