Our clothes require cleaning either by our self or someone does the laundry for us. We want our clothes to be clean when we go out or are just sitting around our home. Image going to the store wearing clothes worn 3 days ago from the gym. Oh my! Even if one has showered, the smell from the clothes will have people covering their noses or talking with wide eyes because they are trying to keep a straight face.Some may just come right out and say ” you stink”. No one likes to be told they stink.
Image trying to go before the Lord as in the days of old, without the Priest, sacrifice, burnt incense and the smoke. We would not be alive. Thank God that our Lord Jesus Christ was the final atonement for the sins of man. When Christ died on the cross, the veil was split. We no longer need to go the Priest to speak to God directly. We now go to God in the name of Jesus. Even if we come to God stinky in the name of Jesus, God see’s Christ. Christ is making the petitions on our behalf.
Hebrews 10:10 KJV 10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
Christ does not look at the clothes we wear or how we smell, He looks at the heart. Is that not good news?
