You cannot raise boys without having a stain remover readily available during laundry time. With a house full of boys, I have become an expert at removing stains! But sometimes, no matter how hard I scrub, my sons’ stains will not come out of their clothes.
During one of my many laundry days last week, I realized every article of clothing from my sons’ school uniforms had to be pre-treated with stain remover! (I’m giving you the face slap emoji right now). As I sprayed, scrubbed, and set aside, the old faithful hymn came to mind. What can wash away my sin, nothing but the blood of Jesus? Oh precious is thy flow, that makes me white as snow. For my cleansing this I plea, nothing but the blood of Jesus.
There is no stain so deep in our lives that can’t be washed away by the ultimate stain remover. Jesus is the ultimate stain remover! By the shedding of his blood on the cross at Calvary, Jesus washed away all my sins, He cleansed me and made me whole, white as snow. Sin-filled and stained lives, Jesus died for every one of them. His grace, mercy, and love go beyond our understanding but are free to us all. By accepting Him as our Lord and Savior, we never have to worry about spraying and scrubbing ever again. All sins, past, present, and future, have been removed. The blood of Jesus Christ his Son, cleanses us from all sin. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:7, 9).
Take a moment to thank God for sending the ultimate stain remover, His son Jesus! So that we may be without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish but holy and blameless (Ephesians 5:27). Don’t you just love doing laundry, wink!
