Living in Healesville, it seems there is so much that attracts dirt.
The windows of our homes are forever getting dirty, the dog regularly rolls in the dust for a scratch, and our cars pick up dirt from unsealed roads and every time it rains.
It's takes time and effort to wash the windows, the dog and our cars.
But the the time and effort are worth it.
We are rewarded with pristine views of the mountains, a loving pooch to cuddle or a shiny car to drive.
There is great value in washing, I am sure your family and friends will agree!
This Sunday we have the privilege of witnessing Zac King and Nicole McCrimmon get the most thorough wash of their lives, baptism.
Baptism is a visible act that symbolises what has taken place in our hearts when we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour.
We have confessed and turned away from our sin, we have put our faith in Jesus Christ, and we have chosen to follow and obey God.
We are washed clean from all our sins and we can now approach God with confidence.
Hebrews 10:22 gives us tremendous encouragement regarding our baptism,
"let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water."
There is great joy in heaven when one sinner repents.
Join us at Liberty this Sunday and let's double our joy together!
Yours in Christ,
