I didn’t realize until that moment just how messy my house really was.
I have been blessed the past year or so to be able to pay someone to come in and clean my home once a month. Talk about a weight off my shoulders! The woman who cleans my place is amazing. She does a deep clean, getting into all of the places I either can’t reach or can’t bend down low enough to get to, from top to bottom she gets the place done. I’m very grateful to have her help me out.
As I was going to bed last night, I noticed that my nightstand was dusty. I’m talking really dusty, as if no one had touched it in more than a month. For a split second, I thought about complaining to my cleaning person but then I remembered something. She was on vacation and would not be returning to clean my place until April. I was on my own, and out came the dust rag.
I’m not a fan of housework at all, and when it comes to ridding myself of the grime of sin, there’s no way of cleaning ourselves off. That has to be removed by someone with the power to do it and that is the Lord. God will meet us in our sinfulness and ask, “Can I clean that for you?” When He does, remember what the Word says in 1 John 1:7: “The blood of Jesus, God’s Son, cleanses us from all sin.”
