True Cleansing

It's been said many times that we all make mistakes and while that's true, it doesn't make us feel any better after we've made one, does it? When we've disappointed someone or disappointed ourselves, we're launched into a feeling that most people hate to feel. We feel broken. We feel ashamed. We feel inadequate. We feel human.

But when it comes to mistakes, there is one person who doesn't feel that way. And that's God. He looked at the human race and instead of seeing inadequacy in our mistakes, He saw a people worth dying for. So that's what He did. Jesus came down to earth to die on the cross for our mistakes.

Jesus came to forgive sinners, to forgive those who've made poor choices, and to forgive those who are bound to mess up again. When God looks at us, He doesn't see the stain of failure, rather He sees the blood of Christ and in His eyes, that is enough.

It's enough to cover the biggest mistakes. It's enough to cover sin. It's enough to cover broken relationships. When the blood of Christ enters your life, it washes every part of you clean. Kind of reliving too know that that kind of forgiveness and that kind of cleansing is only a prayer away, isn't it?
