The amount of disgusting material a human body can contain is amazing. You know this is true if you’ve ever had a sinus infection or prepped for a colonoscopy. These things are not for the faint of heart!

I recently suffered three weeks under the mother-of-all sinus infections. It finally broke up amid hot compresses, antibiotics the size of suppositories, and enough hot tea to hose down a fleet of UPS trucks. As the bacteria withered under this onslaught, I began to blow snot like rodeo bull. I found the storage capacity of my sinuses alarming. If they made industrial strength Kleenex, I would have bought a case.

Another disgusting material our bodies contain isn’t as readily visible, yet sin permeates the very fabric of our being. No hot compress will ease its pressure. No antibiotic will kill it off. No hot tea will wash it away. No amount of Kleenex will wipe it up. The only cure for sin is Jesus Christ and His cleansing blood.

I can mop up the results of one sneeze and stay clean until the next snot-rocketing blow, but this only works until the Kleenex runs out. Thankfully, Christ’s love and forgiveness never runs out! When sin blows through our spiritual Kleenex, Christ is there to wipe us clean when we repent and ask His forgiveness. Dealing with our sin without Christ is like cleaning up after a sinus infection without Kleenex – only messier.

Oh, I'm so glad Christ's love never runs out! What a good analogy, one that resonates right now as I chase two runny noses around the house. :)

Thanks for visiting Our Journey Home last week. It's always fun meeting other bloggers.

Nothing like chasing runny noses to help this post hit home! I hope everyone is healthy soon. :)
