Sermon in the Sink

As I was washing dishes… again… I thought of how often I wash dishes. Not a day goes by that dishes don’t need to be washed. Now, days go by when I don’t wash them, but I could wash at least 1 dish every day! Most days, it’s a couple sink loads!

They are dirty. The forks, the spoons, the plates and bowls. They get used. They serve and hold. If they are not washed, they can’t be used again…ewww…

You know, I got to thinking with my hands in those suds. We are like dishes. We are used daily for different tasks for our Master. We hold and serve. We have many jobs. But if we are not clean, we cannot be used effectively. I mean, you could eat with a dirty fork, but it wouldn’t be sanitary (umm… YUCK!). Can I serve the Lord if I am dirty? Not effectively. I would leave a bad taste in someone’s mouth!

How thankful I am that my Master puts me in that sudsy bath and gets rid of all my impurities. He gets rid of the crusted-on meals, the chocolate milk, and everything that is keeping me from being clean, and being used. It’s usually not comfortable getting in that hot water, but it’s necessary.

Next time God is “washing me,” (without complaining, I might add) may I remember the sermon He taught me at the sink!
