A Diaper Change

When I was on homevisit several years ago I had a once in a lifetime experience.  I was in the kitchen and I heard my niece who was under two years old crying in the back room.  My sister comes to get me.  She tells me that my niece is requesting me to do something.  What?  Yep, she is crying because she wants ME to change her diaper.  She does not want her mom to do it or grandma, but me.  Now, how many of you have been chosen to change a dirty diaper?  My niece finally calmed down when I arrived on the scene to do what she wanted.  I do not know why she wanted me to do it, but I was the chosen one.

As we get ready to enter into Holy Week, do you know who you want to cleanse your soul?  Each one of us is in need of mercy.  Do you and I recognize the "dirt" in our heart?  I am in need of a Savior who will wash me clean.  Are you as adamant and determined as my niece in knowing Who you want to help you?  Go to Jesus these days.  Be not afraid to show Him your soul and be cleansed from sin so as to be at peace and be made new.
