Where would we be
who was willing
to clean up after us?
27 Million Tonnes Of Rubbish Is Thrown Away In The U.k. Every Year.The Current Population Of The U.k. Is 60 Million. So How Much, On Average, Does Each Person Throw Away Each Year? 27 000 000 / 60 000 000 =0.45 tonnes. Therefore, each person produces 0.45 tonnes of rubbish on average in a year.
Dirt and pollution is everywhere, we may love our steam locomotives, but who would want live near them?
Much as we like our streets to be clean and tidy, it takes lots of work and must be repeated each and every day.
Their task is endless, the rubbish just keeps on coming – and thankfully going – so we live a healthy life in a healthy environment !
The Physical Problem and how it’s managed pictures a far greater pollution, the crippling , all contaminating corruption of sin.
Everywhere is affected, the world itself groans under it’s weight:
Romans 8:22 (NKJV)
For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now.
Mankind is Corrupt, to the extent that he pretends pollution is good and being clean is bad:
Genesis 6:5 (NKJV)
The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
Jesus Christ Came To Cleanse Believers and Restore Them To Their Original Condition:
Matthew 8:3 (NKJV)
Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
Those whom He has cleansed are kept clean by the daily application of Jesus’ sacrificial death
1 John 1:9 (NKJV)
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
The Work He completed on the Cross has changed the world forever.
1John 1:7b (NKJV)
The blood of Jesus Christ God’s Son cleanses us from all sin.
A preacher was speaking from the text, “The blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanses us from all sin.” Suddenly he was interrupted by an atheist who asked, “How can blood cleanse sin?”
For a moment the preacher was silent; then he countered, “How can water quench thirst?”
“I do not know,” replied the unbeliever, “but I know that it does.”
“Neither do I know how the blood of Jesus cleanses sin,” answered the preacher, “but I know that it does.” —Sunday School Times
