A Web walk each day with Peggie through a home called Peggie’s Place! . . . .
“”It’s clean, Mom?!”–oh really? Depends on who’s speaking! If it’s remembering my sons’ claim they had “cleaned” their rooms, it sure was NOT clean in MOM’S eyes…and when they hung him on the cross, he was not clean either. He was a thief condemned to die–but not for long. For during those excruciating hours, he recognized Someone hanging next to Him who in a split second of time would forever change his sentence–not man’s but God’s. Men still saw him as the dirty thief; Jesus saw him as a clean child of God. That’s grace, God’s amazing grace!
And it avails for you today. The second you confessed that sin to your Lord and asked His forgiveness, you were forgiven. Give no thought to the tempter’s taunts. He “is a liar, and the truth is not in him (1 John 2:4).” Your past is forgiven, forgotten and forever washed away. You’re cleansed and declared righteous according to heaven’s records. You are clean–heart, soul, body, mind and spirit–in GOD’S eyes! That’s what really counts. Believe it–and have a praise-filled day – for when God proclaims, “You’re clean,” you are clean!
“And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise (Luke 23: 42,43).”
“Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you (John 15:3).”
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins,
and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9).”
Prayer: “Lord, I’ve confessed it a million times–and it continues to haunt me. You heard me the FIRST time–there’s no need to keep feeling the condemnation of the enemy of my soul. Lord, I refuse the harassment and accusations–I am clean, by Your Blood–and like the thief on the cross, I receive that perfect cleansing for my life – spirit, body and soul, In Jesus Name, Amen.”
