We are filthy

Deep Water is the name of my Pastor’s Blog. I read this today and thought about how apropriate it is to think about what Christ has done for us, as we await the coming of his birthday. For 1 year now we have a tradition, ohhhh we’ve done it once (I know not much of a tradition), of singing happy birthday to Jesus on Christmas morning. To us, birthdays are the way we track how old we are, well If we were counting Jesus would be about 2007 years old, if of course Christmas was his “birthday”. It does not matter if Christmas is the actual day Christ was born or not. The reason we celebrate is the gift that was given, from the words of a 6th grader “the best present for Christmas is Christ’s presence!” The best thing we can ever hope for, believe in, trust in, is the presence of Christ, and he is coming to us, not only in 3 days, but always. He promised to be with us always even until the close of the age. We are filthy, just as Zane said, but we have been washed clean through the faithfulness of Jesus to come, and go to the cross where no one else could go to do what he did.

Remember this Christmas that Christ is present and he has washed us clean, through the waters of our baptisms, and as Todd said we are filthy rich in Christ.
