Eggs and Jesus

As Easter has just past I hope the thoughts of Christ are still lingering with us. It is easy to get set up for one of the "big days" in our faith and then pass by it without spending some moments to look back.

This past week a couple of youth came to Wednesday night hang out for egg dyeing! It was a lot of fun, though we might have left a few colored stains on some bowls. So if you are at a church function and get a color streaked bowl don't worry.

If you have ever done much egg dyeing you quickly realize that it is important to blow the yolk out of the egg. You want it to be empty, so that way if it ever cracks down the line you don't have to put up with the nasty smell of rotten eggs.

So when we went about our time dyeing eggs, we had to blow them out. This is possibly my favorite part of the process. It is hard to do properly and it makes a huge mess. This got me to thinking, isn't the egg blowing like what Jesus does for us.

Christ came to die on the cross so that we can be cleaned out on the inside from our sins. Its a messy process for us to deal with our sins and get rid of the after effects, but really we just sit there while Jesus cleans out our insides. He needs to clean out our insides so that when we are broken we don't smell rotten.

What a simple thing we can see to understand our lives Christ more.
