stained

I wanted to share our family night this week because I really loved it.  We love Family Time and used their lesson that I got e-mailed to me this month.

Here is the link to this family night.

Jeremiah 2:22 Although you wash yourself with soda and use an abundance of

soap, the stain of your guilt is still before me,” declares the Sovereign Lord.

 

Daddy drew the ‘stains’ on the shirt.  Rilyn tried to use a wipe to remove hers.

How is this verse similar to my trying to wash the stain out of my shirt?

I cannot get rid of the stain by my own efforts. I made the stain

worse.  

 It’s the same with sin. When we sin—doing something God tells

us not to do—we have a stain on our life. We are no longer pure and

holy. And, by our own efforts, we cannot become pure and holy again.

This is the shirt after we washed it in the washing machine. The stains still won’t come out!

Hebrews 1:3 After {Jesus} had provided purification for sins,

he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.

Only Jesus can take away our sins.

How does Jesus take away our sin?  Through His dying on the cross. When we believe in Jesus and do what He says, He cleanses us from sin. He makes us pure and holy.

The scissors represent Jesus who takes away the stain of sin that we could not wash away by ourselves.

I John 1:7 And the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.

The only way to remove the stains is to cut them out.

 The holes that remain represents the consequences of sin.

Jesus takes away the sin yet we will still need to deal with the

consequences of our bad choices.

   

The stains are removed, but there is still a consequence-there are now holes in the shirt.  (Ella is smiling because she just finished a blue lollipop!  And, no, James did NOT do a good job with the placement of these stains!  Sorry for the inappropriate cut-outs!)
