Jesus was dirtier than you think (K-LOVE radio station). When I heard this statement, I was greatly intrigued and captivated by it. It was all that I could think on for quite a while. I pondered it’s meaning over and over again, before realizing that it would take on an individual meaning for each reader.
I thought about the many people that Jesus healed; some of the characters were named, such as The woman with the issue of blood, Blind Bartimaeus, The woman caught in the very act of adultery or Nicodemus — who was a teacher of the scripture — But sometimes the scripture would say that Jesus healed the masses. Jesus healed some, forgave some of their sins and opened the understanding of many, I then also realized that there were millions that were given the opportunity to receive something from him — but didn’t — why not? Simply and plainly, they didn’t want anything from him. Let’s read what Isaiah 53:6 says, “We all went wandering like sheep; going every one of us after our own desire; and the Lord put on him the punishment for the sin of us all.” (Bible in Basic English) So we read that Jesus carried upon himself the sins of the whole world-that encompasses the past, present and future sins of us all — that is a lot of sins, actually more than can be numbered, think about the number of people that have been born since Jesus’s day and time. We don’t like to think about the horrible fact that he carried all of our sins — sins are filthy and deplorable, and stink in the nostrils of God — no wonder he was so dirty. When I allow myself to actually think about him carrying my past, present and future sins alone, I’m tearfully sorry to the point of repentance. This is an ugly but beautiful fact; Jesus was dirtier than you think. He carried all of our dirt and filth straight to the cross — even those of us who reject him — and he said “It is finished” (John 19:30 Amplified Bible) if you accept me and what I have done for you — he did what we could not, and would not, do for ourselves — you will be washed clean of your dirt, filth and sins. So you see when you actually sit down and truly think about Jesus and what he did for us — that’s everyone that would ever be born — you’ll realize that he was dirtier than you thought.
