Cleaning Out the Sin

June 8, 2015

So as I sit here in the church office, ServePro is in our church foyer cleaning up mold that has crept in due to two severe water links in the past month. There are mold spores everywhere, but are invisible to the naked eye. Once those spores come in contact with water and warm air they start to grow and develop into mold that we can see. However, by that time it is too late to do anything other than call in the professionals to clean the mold up and out. Cleaning up mold is a very elaborate process that includes cleaning the carpet, the walls, the air unit, the vents, and other places affected by mold. Sin is a lot like mold. James says in his letter sin is “conceived” “birthed” when our desires give in to temptation. Once that happens, sin like mold, sets in and it becomes too late to do anything. That is when we turn to God who will in turn clean us of our sin. The cleaning agent that God uses is blood, specifically the blood of Jesus. Blood that is “pure and undefiled” according the Apostle Peter. Sin does not have to be a way of life nor does it have to be something that we just live with. God offers a chance to have all things impacted by sin to be made new and clean. Maybe that is what we need today.

“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.” 1st John 1:7
