White Shirt

As I get dressed this morning on my off day, I look into my closet and start to choose a white shirt. It is one of my favorites, but I am about to change my mind knowing that a clean white shirt is bound to attract a stain. I donít want to take a chance on ruining it. I picture myself wearing the shirt and how nice it feels. The shirt fits perfectly and I always feel good wearing it. I decide to wear it after all and risk a stain, because I have just had a realization.

When I accepted Jesus into my life he washed away my sins and made me new. As I go out into the world sin is attracted to my cleanliness and every day I make mistakes and sin again dirtying myself. I ask Jesus for forgiveness, and each time he washes away the sin leaving an unstained person, just as if I had washed with a perfect detergent.

There are days when I am afraid to go out into the world because I know I will sin and dirty what the Lord has made clean. I should not be afraid of inevitably sinning again and needing forgiveness. There is no reason to fear that the Lord can not clean me up again. The Lord is perfect, and so is his forgiveness.

I am the white shirt.
