Squeaky Clean

So we were playing with my favorite soccer ball in a nearby parking lot. We were running and scoring, having a great time! But with every bounce, roll, and kick, my soccer ball naturally got really dirty. Soon, black streaks covered the ball thanks to the fact we were playing on asphalt. No longer did the ball look squeaky clean and brand new. In fact, it looked more like it had survived some sort of war! After a while, the black streaks started bothering me, so I decided it needed to be cleaned.

This reminded me of God and His awesome grace. We all tend to stain ourselves with sin. Unfortunately, that's our sinful nature. But the good news is that we can always go to Jesus, asking Him to forgive us for our sins.

Here's the most important part: There's no way my soccer ball can clean itself and neither can we. Thankfully, God can make us like new again. He's the only One that makes us clean.... all we have to do is be willing.
