I was just talking on the phone to my five year old great grandson while he was soaking in the #bathtub after a fun afternoon playing outside.  I asked if he was using #soap, and he replied, “not yet”  His grandfather then said, “soap up the #wash rag and lather up”.  When I asked if he #scrubbed his feet- I heard a dunk…He took a full body dip under water with supervision.  Yes, he was clean from head to toe and talking about dinner.  That reminded me of the way God #purges out our dirty sins.  To purge is to cleanse  by removing impurities.  God is the perfect refiner. Isaiah 1:25 “I the LORD will turn my hand upon you and thoroughly purge away your waste – dross “  Psalm 51:7 David said,  “PURGE ME with hyssop and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.”  All of us have set backs, failures, and sins that destroy, but God restores, shines, and rejuvenates.  “Iniquities prevail against me: as for our transgressions God shall purge them away.” Ps.65:3  HOW? “How much more shall the blood of Christ who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to GOD to PURGE YOUR CONSCIENCE FROM DEAD WORKS TO SERVE THE LIVING GOD.” Hebrews 9:14  We are no longer five yrs. old, but we all need to come clean.  Our scrubbing does not remove our stain filled lives, but God sees us and if we ask He will cleanse us from all unrighteousness !  Ps.79:9 “Help us, O GOD of our SALVATION for the glory of thy name and deliver us, and PURGE AWAY OUR SINS, for thy name’s sake.” Be cleansedYou know God has the marriage supper of the Lamb waiting for us!  Rev.19:9
