“Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord,” Acts 3:19
Every year, I go to the store where my husband bought my wedding ring to be inspected and cleaned. The jeweler inspects the ring, to make sure nothing is damaged and then steam cleans the ring to its original brilliance. Everyday life has its way with my wedding ring. Despite the cleaning I provide it in between visits to the store, it never looks as good as it does when they take care of it. The dirt and grime my ring seems to collect needs that steam cleaning to look clean and shiny again. This goes for our lives too. We need a good steam cleaning from God.
