Imagine taking countless showers and still emerging from them filthy. Imagine spending tons of money on body wash, body scrub, etc., and never being able to remove any dirt off of yourself. Imagine walking around with an unforgivable reek that has only been masked by body spray. This is the state of humanity before God... The cologne of our “good works” is not adequate to cleanse us from our sin nature.
Righteousness apart from God is IMPOSSIBLE and our attempts are as filthy rags. We need a Savior, a Redeemer, One Who can efficiently remove our sins. There's hope for us, His blood STILL works and is able to cleanse us from ALL our sin no matter how deep we're in it! He makes ALL things new! His sacrifice and blood alone cleanses us! Thank you Lord for making a way!
“Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” -Isaiah 1:18
