Maybe one of the greatest gifts you could ever be given is a dumpster. You might currently have so much stuff that you wouldn't want to ever think about the process of moving. If you only could get rid of what you've hung onto for so long.

That's the very feeling that so many people over so many years have experienced when they surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. They came to the dumpster of God and unloaded stuff that they'd hung onto for a long time. It's an experience God wants you to have even today.

It's vividly described in 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 of God's Word. It begins with bad news about some of the dirty and useless stuff we hang onto and ends with some really good news. It says, "Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God."

These verses say that anyone who lets anything be more important than God in their life or anyone who speaks or acts destructively toward another person will not inherit the kingdom of God. Now that is bad news. Our sin leaves us with no human chance of heaven. Fasten your seat belt; here comes the dumpster of God. You were made special and you were made right with God in the name of Jesus.

Because of what Jesus did when He died on the cross, you don't have to be dirty inside for another day. You can be clean from now on and you don't have to be away from God. You can belong to God if you'll bring your sin, your selfishness, and all the junk of your life that you've run on your own to the dumpster of God - the cross of Jesus Christ! That's where every wrong thing you've ever done was paid for in full by the shed blood of Jesus Christ.

It's stuff you've hung onto so long and includes the guilt of it all, the shame, and the regrets of what you wish you had done differently. Jesus took all that on Himself when He died on the cross, and He's waiting to take it from you at the moment you put your total trust in Him to be your personal Savior from your personal sin. It happens the moment you give yourself to Him, turning from that sin and placing your life in His hands. How does it feel? Many describe the feeling of getting rid of all that junk with one word - cleansing.

You can be cleansed today! This can be the day that Jesus Christ enters your life; the day that you experience the wonderful relief of getting rid of so much that you've been hanging onto for so long.
