As a mom, I change my baby’s diaper many times a day. I know that it is only a matter of time before I get one with the grand prize: Poop!
People may think that I dread changing his diaper, but I enjoy that time. I get to comfort him, clean him up thoroughly, put baby lotion on him so that he smells good, and even put on him a fresh set of clothes. No matter how many times he poops, I will always be there gladly with open arms to clean him up and to demonstrate to him that he is deeply loved. I sure many of you mommies can relate.
But many of us are like younger babies who are unaware that they are sitting in a big pile of poop. Others are like slightly older babies who don’t want to get their diaper changed because they are uncomfortable or ashamed. Maybe you committed a murder that no one found out about, you stole, said a curse word, or done things that are so shameful that you determined that you will take your secrets to the grave.
Well let me ask you something; How do you feel when you see that your child is feeling uncomfortable, feeling dirty, is hurt, or in need of need of new clothes? Do you feel angry or annoyed? No! God is not surprised at your sin problem. He not only knows it’s there, but he created a way to clean you up and give you new clothes!
Let me tell you, if you trust in him, he will remove your dirty diaper and he will not only clean you up, but will give you a new fragrance and a fresh set of clothes. So, let Jesus change your diaper. He wants to be that loving parent to you.
