5-4-2015 Let’s Keep Jesus In Baptism

Why are people “dirty” when there is so much water on earth? Are they clean because they simply SAY they are clean? Isn’t it because they have not followed the principle of applying soap AND water?

Why are people still in their sins, even though they have SAID they were saved before they were washed in the blood of Jesus’ death? “Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life” (Romans 6:3-4 NKJV). Cleansing from sins is applying Jesus’ blood in baptism. Jesus’ blood is the soap of the soul, and water baptism is where it is applied.

Let’s Keep Jesus In Baptism!

Two super clean smells to me

Daily Nudge asks what smells clean to me. There are two. One, aloe vera gel — at least, the store variety. Two, Amway’s LOC multi-purpose cleaner. Those two are just about the best clean, fresh smells I know of. I use them both a good bit. I was actually using the latter in the office when the Nudge question came to me.

(I can only find the J&J Sundown aloe vera in Brazil; reckon it’s not available in the US? LOC is available everywhere. [Disclosure: last link is The Missus’.])

What Smells Related To “Clean”?

Lysol disinfectant comes to mind immediately. It kills so many germs (99.9% it claims). Everything does seem to smell “clean” after using it.

Clean desk is a sign…

Laura is right.

A clean desk is the sign of a truly disturbed mind. I’m a stacker. I have my stack of Bibles, my stack of testaments, my stack of print-outs, my stack of notebooks, etc., covering the desktop and a small space in the middle from which to write.

Usually, there are three to five books opened along with at least two translations of the Bible and the GNT. I find comparing translations to be an easy and good way to understand some of the more interesting KJV words. My laptop is on all the time on a computer desk behind me.

They say stackers are either control freaks or people who like pancakes. Could be either.

Are my surroundings cluttered or clean? …

Are my surroundings cluttered or clean? They are relatively clean. I’m not a pack rat nor a collector, plus the fact that anything accumulated that is over six months old, is either given to the church, Good Will, or thrown away. I take pride in possessing and employing good organizational skills.

Prince Mongo – JAM

Old caskets, junk cars, piles of rotting wood, parts of old mannequins, rusting bathtubs and more made up the trash and junk scattered through the yard of Robert Hodges.  His property was right in the middle of a fashionable Memphis neighborhood.  The owner called himself Prince Mongo and said he was from the planet Zambodia.  He wore animal skins and a bone necklace.  The city finally took all they could take & moved in to “clean house”.  They loaded up all the garbage, excluding Prince Mongo, and hauled it to the dump.  There is a time for everything, including cleaning house. In view of the continued decline in morals, America is overdue for a house cleaning. This is Just-A-Minute with Ed Boggess
