Day 11: Come Clean



No need to CLEAN up your act

before you come before GOD

because only GOD can CLEAN up your act

because it took an ACT of GRACE

the moment JESUS took all our

dirt

scum

mess

on the CROSS

so we HE can CLEAN up our ACT.

And that my friend is

GRACE.

HIS AMAZING GRACE

that empowers the REAL CHANGE

that we all need.

And it is HIS SAME AMAZING GRACE

we need on a daily base

because we can't CLEAN up our ACT

as we can never be

good enough to enter into the PRESENCE of GOD

with our good doing or good being,

It sounds counter productive.

It sounds a wee bit upside down.

But because we live in an upside down world

GOD did the most upside down ACT

by sending HIS PERFECT SON

to get all dirty with our mess

so that HE can CLEAN us up.

Hmm.

AMAZING GRACE

that tells ALL to just COME as we are

so HE can COVER us with HIS PERFECT

that covers all our IMPERFECTIONS.

So upside down, isn't it.

because WHO does that?

Who wants the IMPERFECT to come into HIS PRESENCE?

A GOOD GOD.

Our CREATOR

who ONCE UPON A TIME

made the CHOICE to perform an ACT

that knitted you together in your mother's womb.

And that my friend is

AMAZING GRACE as no one wishes themselves into existence.

So if we are a product of an ACT OF GOD

then we need an ACT OF GOD to CLEAN UP OUR ACT.

JESUS~

GOD'S AMAZING GRACE that covers us so that we can come into HIS PRESENCE~

"So, friends, we can now—without hesitation—walk right up to GOD, into the Holy Place. JESUS has cleared the way by the blood of HIS sacrifice, acting as our priest before GOD.

The curtain into GOD's presence is HIS body"*

Ready. Get Set. Go.

"So let’s do it—full of belief, confident that we’re presentable inside and out. Let’s keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going" (Hebrews 10:19-23).

Oh just COME as you are

just because you can

because that is why they

"CALL IT GRACE" (listen to the song below)
