Think of a white t-shirt, clean and bright. If it were to fall into a mud puddle, the brightness would vanish underneath the immense dirt stains. Even though the shirt knows it is needs washed, there is no way it can get into the wash machine on its own. Regardless of how much dirt is on it, once someone puts it through the washing machine, it can return to the same bright and clean state it was before.
We are the same way, despite the fact each one of us are broken, and sin the reason we are broken. Even though we know that are hearts are sinful, not one of us holds the power to overcome strangle hold it has on our life. It is only through Jesus Christ that sin can be removed from our lives.
Some of us think because of the terrible condition that sin has left our lives in that we need to get to a certain point before Jesus can cleanse us, let alone use us. But the blood of Jesus is more powerful than any sin you or I can commit, all we have to do is allow Him to transform us into His instrument. Even if we have a little pepper mixed in, we can still be the salt that Christ has called us to be.
But some will come to me—those the Father has given me—and I will never, never reject them. John 8:37 (TLB)
