Natalie my wife has an unashamed love for cleaning. With her fascination and passion for clearing every spec of dust, she could be in line to join presenters Kim and Aggie on ‘How clean is your house?’.
I’ll regularly hear phrases such as, ‘the living room is a tip’ echoing through our shiny corridors, only to find that the ‘tip’ she refers too is a single book left on the sofa.
And so, for our next date night, I’m taking her on an insightful evening to a tip. She will love it. In fact, she’ll probably attempt to tidy it.
Now, let’s clear up one thing (excuse the pun) – I do not share this love for cleaning. Whilst I’m not on the level of mouldy tissues gathering dust, I do not see the need for the extent of tidying that Natalie does. Nonetheless, I do my bit and I appreciate being able to live in a clean and tidy house.
As we approach Good Friday this week, we remember a greater act of clearing up.
Jesus Christ, the son of God, chose to die on a cross so that all the garbage in our lives can be disposed of, forgotten & forgiven.
If Kim and Aggie were to visit the house of ‘Tom’s life’ – they would sure find a few things that need clearing out. But Jesus has taken my mess on the cross. He’s done the ultimate spring clean, once and for all.
This Easter weekend finishes as believers celebrate the fact that Jesus rose again. In this breath taking event of Jesus dying and coming back to life, our mess becomes a message of good news.
Here’s a couple of questions to ask yourself this Easter weekend?
How clean is your house? (life)
What is your response to Jesus?
I fully believe in the events of easter and this act of sacrificial love, demonstrated by Jesus has transformed the way that I live. Want to know more – contact me – firstname.lastname@example.org
