Spiritual Cleansing

He washed the feet of his followers.  He asked his cousin to baptize him, even though there was no need of a spiritual cleansing.  And Jesus spent a great deal of time in the company of people your mother wouldn't want you to bring home for dinner.  Why?  I think Jesus sees past the dirt.  He sees the potential.  Imagine yourself as the unclean person drawing water from the well when Jesus stops by for a drink...

The truth is you can't hide anything from Jesus.  He already knows everything about you.  He wants to introduce you to the Father.  Before you do that, it's a good idea to take a bath.  The best soap and water comes from the Holy Spirit.  Think of it as spending a day at the spa.  You can have everything on the menu.  Jesus is the One who will clean you up.  He will let you take home the white robe to help you remember you are a new creation.
