Earmuffs and fountains

Today is National Earmuffs Day.

I’ll let that set in.

Go figure! I would have to say that I could use a pair of earmuffs right now, even as I write this!

But anyway that got me to thinking about coverings and something the modern church doesn’t talk about near as much as the church of my youth, the blood of Christ. But it’s important every once in a while to remember the fountain that washes us of our guilty stains. It’s not a fountain of youth or a fountain of purity, but a pure fountain of the blood of the Son of God.

knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ. (1 Peter 1:18, 19 NASB)

And because of the cleansing fountain our vile sin is gone and redeeming love can be our theme. Let’s get up, throw on your earmuffs if you need them and realize we are walking around clean because of that fountain. Trust it and do what needs to be done.

Hebrews 9:14 ESV

How much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God.
