Clean My Cup, Lord

Given June 15, 2001
I read a book during this time called, "" which painted a picture with words of the "highway" in Isaiah 35. I could clearly "see" every step of the way up to the highway and once on the highway, I saw the people there and the dangers which were hidden in the ditches.

As we all do sometimes, travelers would get off the road, realize their mistake, and come back up to the road to meet Jesus. Yes, He's traveling the road with us. When we come, repentant, back to Jesus, we're holding our "vessel", our cup, if you will, which has been contaminated and dirtied by sin. And it's empty! We offer the stained vessel up to the Lord and say, "Lord, I'm sorry. Here's my cup. Please cleanse it and fill it back up. And, He does.

Jesus said, "Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be clean". Matthew 23:26. I do this often when I realize I've gotten off the road and my cup is empty and dirty. You can feel when you need a refilling, can't you? As I hold my cup up to Jesus, He washes it out and fills it to the brim. I realize I've been forgiven and have the infilling to go on with Him and do His work. I wanna stay on the road!
