Zechariah 13:1

"On that day a fountain will be opened for the dynasty of David and for the people of Jerusalem, a fountain to cleanse them from all their sins and impurity."

What an image! We step into a fountain with all the nasty things that we each have and step out on the other side clean as a whistle!

It's true! We do exactly that because we have been washed with the blood of Jesus!

Jesus took our nasty sins and we become clean….

It doesn't matter how we try to clean up the cross it's not a pretty picture exactly what Jesus did for each of us! The only way for us to be clean was exactly what Jesus did..

Recently, I was reading a book by Brennan Manning and he described how we all try to clean up the cross. We all have beautiful crosses in our homes, but that we try to forget what actually happened on the cross. (Debbie paraphrase) Well, for us to be truly clean we can't forget….

Debbie, I even think that when we say there is another way to Heaven, we are making light of Jesus' death on the cross.

Jesus said in John 14:6, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

Lord, please forgive us when we take your death on the cross lightly. Help us to remember the price you paid for us.
