Our Daily Bread For Today 30th March 2022 Devotional, Wednesday Message Written By Marvin Williams (Our Daily Bread Ministries)  || ODB  Daily Reading

TOPIC: God Cleans the Stains

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: Isaiah 1:10–18

10 Hear the word of the Lord,o you rulers of Sodom;  listen to the instruction of our God, you people of Gomorrah!r

11 “The multitude of your sacrifices— what are they to me?” says the Lord. “I have more than enough of burnt offerings, of rams and the fat of fattened animals; I have no pleasure in the blood of bullsu and lambs and goats.v

12 When you come to appear before me, who has asked this of you,w this trampling of my courts?

13 Stop bringing meaningless offerings!x Your incensey is detestablez to me. New Moons,a Sabbaths and convocations— I cannot bear your worthless assemblies.

14 Your New Moon feasts and your appointed festivals I hate with all my being.e They have become a burden to me; I am weary of bearing them

15 When you spread out your hands in prayer, I hidei my eyes from you;

even when you offer many prayers, I am not listening. Your hands are full of blood!l

16 Wash and make yourselves clean. Take your evil deeds out of my sight; stop doing wrong.o

17 Learn to do right;  seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.t

18 “Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.

KEY VERSE: Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool. – Isaiah 1:18

BIBLE IN A YEAR: Judges 9–10; Luke 5:17–39

TODAY’S INSIGHT: The book of Isaiah is a vision the prophet received from God addressed to Israel, a people in rebellion (1:1–2). God was incensed at their wickedness and sin (v. 4). As commentator Barry Webb writes: Their “worship had been divorced from justice, and the fatherless and the widow had become the chief victims” (see v. 17). Their sacrifices were merely a means to an end. The prophet Micah, a contemporary of Isaiah, states what God requires: “To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God” (Micah 6:8). Yet despite His righteous anger, God extended this loving invitation: “Turn to me and be saved” (Isaiah 45:22).

MESSAGE

What if our clothes were more functional, having the ability to clean themselves after we dropped ketchup or mustard or spilled a drink on them? Well, according to the BBC, engineers in China have developed a special “coating which causes cotton to clean itself of stains and odors when exposed to ultraviolet lights.” Can you imagine the implications of having self-cleaning clothes?

A self-cleaning coating might work for stained clothes, but only God can clean a stained soul. In ancient Judah, God was angry with His people because they had “turned their backs on” Him, given themselves to corruption and evil, and were worshipping false gods (Isaiah 1:2–4).

But to make matters worse, they tried to clean themselves by offering sacrifices, burning incense, saying many prayers, and gathering together in solemn assemblies

Yet their hypocritical and sinful hearts remained (vv. 12–13). The remedy was for them to come to their senses and with a repentant heart bring the stains on their souls to a holy and loving God. His grace would cleanse them and make them spiritually “white as snow” (v. 18).

When we sin, there’s no self-cleaning solution. With a humble and repentant heart, we must acknowledge our sins and place them under the cleansing light of God’s holiness. We must turn from them and return to Him. And He, the only One who cleans the stains of the soul, will offer us complete forgiveness and renewed fellowship.

REFLEC: When the Holy Spirit reveals your sins to you, what’s your response? How does John describe the process of bringing your sin to God and repenting of it (see 1 John 1:9)

PRAY: Father, forgive me for ignoring or trying to get rid of my own sin. I know only You can clean the stains of my soul. I acknowledge and repent of my self-sufficiency and turn to You.
