In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace that he lavished on us. (Ephesians 1:7-8 NRSV)
Have you ever spilled something really messy on your clothes? Maybe something like ketchup, or chocolate milk, or mustard, or pizza? Or maybe you've gotten your clothes all muddy and stained with grass stains. When you get your clothes all messed up like that, it's really hard to get them clean again. You might need to use a special stain remover to get really yucky stains out of clothes. I bet you use some really powerful cleaner to get really messy stuff out of your clothes.

But what do we use to get really yucky stuff like sin out of our hearts? When our hearts and lives are sinful, we need something really powerful to get them out! Well, that's what Jesus came to earth for. Jesus never committed a sin in His whole life. However, he did forgave us of our sins. And He died so that our sins wouldn't keep us out of Heaven. No, April foolin' either!

Dear God, thank you for Jesus who is my savior. No foolin'. In Jesus name, Amen.
