Bubbles have a way of bursting quickly, long before you want them to. That’s the way so many pleasures in life are. One minute we’re having fun and the next minute that fun is gone, leaving a sticky mess behind. It kind of reminds me of sin. One minute of doing what we want and not what God wants seems like a great idea. But before long we find ourselves trapped in the sticky mess of sin and rebellion.
God says, “the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23). Sin is doing what seems right to us without caring what God says about it. We’ve all done it, but the consequences are really awful. Instead of a bubbly mess that can be cleaned up with a little warm water, we are left facing away from God’s love in hell forever.
Warm water might be all you need to clean up after making bubbles, but it takes a lot more to clean up sin. Jesus Christ came to die on the cross and shed His blood to wash away all sin for everyone who believes on Him. The Bible says, “the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin” (1 John 1:7). Dying on the cross for sin cost the perfect Lord Jesus a tremendous amount of suffering, but it won’t do us any good unless we recognize two things.
One: We are sinners who need a Saviour. We aren’t just a little bit messy with sin, we are hopelessly tangled in it and badly need a Saviour.
Two: We must simply accept the Lord Jesus and His shed blood to wash us from those sins. It would do no good to believe that warm water will wash sticky hands clean without actually using it. It does no good to believe that Jesus lived and died without accepting Him as your Saviour. “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved” (Acts 16:31).
