A father was driving one rainy afternoon along one of the main streets of town, taking those extra precautions necessary when roads are wet and slick. Suddenly, his daughter, Josie, spoke up from her relaxed position in her seat. "Dad, I'm thinking of something."
This announcement usually meant she had been pondering some fact for a while and was now ready to expound all that her six year old mind had discovered. Dad was eager to hear what she had to say. "What are you thinking?" he asked.
"The rain" she began, "is like sin and the windshield wipers are like God wiping our sins away!" After the goose bumps raced up the dad's arms, he was able to respond, "That's a really good thought."
Then his curiosity broke in. How far would this little girl take this revelation? So he asked, "Do you notice how the rain keeps on coming? What does that tell you?"
His little girl didn't hesitate one moment with her answer, "We keep on sinning and God still keeps on forgiving us." Her dad thought to himself, "I will always remember this whenever I turn my windshield wipers on."
Many Christians stumble and think that if they have fallen and sinned... they can't really be saved or forgiven again! This is a lie from Satan himself! While we don't want to continue in sin... simply because we know God is willing to forgive us (Romans 6:1)... we can be assured Christ is our attorney, always pleading our case before the Father.
This is an incredible promise to all God's children... that if we sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ!! 1 John 2:1,2 God is always willing to forgive us our sins, if we come to Him with a an attitude of true repentance and ask for forgiveness!
Don't struggle with thoughts from the devil... pick up your Bible and get acquainted with our Lord and Savior, who was and is the propitiation for our sins!! *Note: 1 John 2:2, 1 John 4:10
