1 John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Years ago, as I was being a good husband and washing dishes, there came a thought to me. We had some toddler cups that were too deep and narrow for my hands to reach with a dishcloth. To my disgust, the bottom of the cup was still dirty. Well, I found the greatest invention since the remote. It was a sponge that was attached to a long handle – perfect to reach where my hands could not. I thought of the passage above which informs us that God will cleanse us from “ALL” sin. There are a couple of points to this illumination.
- God gets where we cannot. We need to confess to God and we need the cleansing power of Christ. We need it, because we cannot clean ourselves. The wounds are too deep. Jesus can reach where we cannot.
- God gets all that we cannot. God is faithful. He is reliable to get the job done. There is no doubt that Jesus Christ will reach the worst and get all the dirt.
