Bath Time



One of the sweetest times a mother spends with her baby is bath time. A loving touch and soothing words comfort your child. This is a refreshing time for the two of you, especially if he was smelly from sleeping in a wet diaper. Or maybe he spit up on himself and your new blouse. Maybe he dumped a bowl of cereal on his head. A bath and baby oil  make your little one soft and cuddly again.

In the same way, our Father God wants to come close to us. Yet, we have a BIG problem. God is holy (pure, sinless, just and righteous). He cannot look on anything that is sinful, which we are. We are not holy as God is holy, because we think and do wrong things. God made a way to cleanse us of all unrighteousness through Jesus Christ our Lord. He loved us so much He sent Jesus, His only Son, into the world to save us from ourselves.

Jesus took our sinfulness to the cross and died a criminal's death on our behalf. In return, He gave us forgiveness for our sin. He rose from the grave to give us new and everlasting life. When we believe this, we are not dirty on the inside any more. We have been washed spiritually and God will come to us, refresh us and comfort us. He will counsel and guide us. He will give us an abundant life far beyond anything we could imagine.

Prayer: Thank you, Father God, for Jesus. Thank you for cleansing us from our sin and being with us through all eternity. In Jesus' name, Amen.

"It is written, 'Be holy, for I am holy' " (1 Peter 1:16).

"The Lord is righteous in all His ways, and kind in all His works" (Psalm 145:17).

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only son so that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life" (John 3:16).
