Baby Wipe Faith

If you have toddlers or work with toddlers then you are no stranger to baby wipes. You use them for everything. They are great. Everyday we use a crazy amount of baby wipes on our kids. Wiping their faces, hands, and bottoms, but at some point we have to stick them in the bath tub. The filth becomes too great. Nothing will get them clean and they need a good scrubbing with soap and water.

I actually thought of this reading Hebrews today. The old covenant required the people of God to go through strict rituals to receive a mere baby wipe bath. It got them clean, but they smelled like baby wipes. But Jesus came and made the ultimate sacrifice by offering himself for the sins of man. He has come to not just wipe us down, but to cleanse us from the inside out. He has scrubbed us on the inside. We are pure and truly clean. Are you clean today? Have you fully trusted in the work of Christ that he has purified us?
Hebrews 9:14 “how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?”
