The holidays are always nice, with each year filled with its own special memories.


But it sure is nice to get everything put away, normal things put back in place and have the house back to normal and clean. Wait, something doesn’t sound right about that last sentence. “Normal and clean” may not go together, at least on my part.


Clean. That’s a nice word.


Wouldn’t you love to be clean. Not the kind of clean that simple soap and water can take care of. I mean really clean. Clean in your heart, soul and mind.


You can, you know. If you are in Christ, you already are. You just have to remember what has been given to you in Christ.


David wrote about this cleansing and Paul quoted him and said the blessing of this cleansing is for all of us in Jesus.


How blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered!

 2 How blessed is the man to whom the LORD does not impute iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no deceit! (Ps. 32:1-2)


Paul says this blessing is for those who believe in Him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. Washed in His blood. Clean and whole. How blessed is that person.
