Be cleansed

Hello, God has given me something in 2 Kings 5:9-10 which says,

“So Naaman went with his horses and chariots and stopped at the door of Elisha’s house. Elisha sent a messenger to say to him, “Go, wash yourself seven times in the Jordan, and your flesh will be restored and you will be cleansed.”

Naaman was healed, and his flesh was restored. Gehezi (Elisha’s servant) thought Elisha went to “soft” on Naaman, because he didn’t take the gift Naaman offered him. So Gehezi lied to Naaman to get two talents and two pairs of clothing, and Elisha knew it and said that Gehezi and his descendants would always have leprosy “clinging” to them.

At the cross, Jesus cleansed us from our sin. He died in our place! He gave His own life for us. The perfect, holy, wonderful, awesome, righteous, son of God, gave His life for a bunch of sinful, un-holy, horrible, un-awesome, un-righteous, wretches. It is amazing. Jesus gave His own life for us at the cross.

Jesus loves us so much. John 3:16-17 says,

“For God so loved the world, that he gave His one and only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send His son into the world to condemn the world but to save the world through him.”

Thank you Jesus!! Are you thankful to Jesus for saving you, and giving His life for you and me at the cross? Do you believe that Jesus loves us so much, and that He His still holding us? This song talks about us being “owned” by Jesus, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eTQTcasa2S8

Peace and love, Joy Cleveland
