Unclean. Dirty. Filthy. Those words produce strong connotations. We may think of the homeless or the dispossessed. Or perhaps our minds wander to the impoverished here and around the world. Rarely if ever do we think of ourselves in those terms. Yet that is precisely how the Bible communicates our righteousness in comparison to God’s. We are unclean through our deeds past and present, our bad attitudes, our thought-life, and in other ways we don’t even contemplate. But there is Good News for the ungodly. In this sermon, we journey into the Gospel of Mark to see a Savior who is not only able but willing to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
- We have a strong Savior.
- We have a compassionate Savior.
