Coming Clean- Part 1

You know it's time for a car wash when you're front bumper's plastered with bugs. That's the case with my car this week.

This is a picture of the wash cycle in the car wash. Look at the water covering the windshield. What a picture of how God's word covers our hearts and penetrates down into the deepest part cleansing and renewing our lives from the inside out.

As I was pondering spending time in God's word, I immediately thought about the bronze basin of the tabernacle. The priests had to come clean before God by washing their hands and feet before moving further inside the tabernacle. They couldn't minister before God with dirty hands and feet. They had to come clean. I like what Matthew Henry says in his commentary about the washing,

"This was to teach them purity in all their services, and to dread the pollution of sin. They must not only wash and be made clean, when first made priests, but must wash and be kept clean, whenever they went to minister. It teaches us daily to attend upon God, daily to renew our repentance for sin,and our looking to the blood of Christ for remission; for in many things we daily offend."

"The LORD said to Moses,You shall also make a basin of bronze, with its stand of bronze, for washing. You shall put it between the tent of meeting and the altar, and you shall put water in it, with which Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and their feet." (Ex 30:22-38)ESV

As you go about your day, think about all the times you have to wash something. Then ask yourself, "Have I washed my heart and mind in God's word today?"
