Summer Time Car Washes!! You see the Youth Groups and Bands with the posters waving! These excited kids are trying to raise money for their projects! If you drive by a car wash, you will see many men and women working hard to make their cars or trucks look good! Cars have to be washed again and again! What about you and me? Well when we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, Jesus will forgive us! When we sin, we ask Jesus for forgiveness, and HE WILL forgive us! God does not look at our 1 John 1 : 9 says ” If we confess our sins, He (Jesus) is faithful and just and will forgive us of ALL our sins.” In the Old Testament, the little shepherd boy, David, was chosen to be the King. Samuel, Gods prophet, did not think that it would be the youngest small son of Jesse. 1 Samuel 16:7,b “But the Lord said to Samuel, ” The Lord does not look at the things that people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.” God chose David to be the King of Israel. King David was later known as a “man seeking after Gods heart”. God could see that David loved and wanted to obey God. Later we see that David fell into the sin of adultery, but David repented and God forgave David. See Blog post later this week, “Whiter Than Snow ” for more of the story! The devil wants to tell you two lies: Lie# 1: “You can do anything you want, God doesn’t mind!” Lie# 2 : God will not forgive you of your sin!
Sinning is wrong. The Bible is clear about what is right or wrong. We don’t want to play games with God! We need to recognize sin in our lives and repent. We also need to know that God CAN AND WILL forgive us if we repent of sin, and come humbly to God to be forgiven! God Loves you! God cares about your heart, what is inside you! You can be CLEAN on the inside! Enjoy this fun song! Holy Hugs!
