QTVOTD: Can’t wash it off…

“For though you wash yourself with lye and use much soap, yet your iniquity and guilt are still [upon you; you are] spotted, dirty, and stained before Me, says the Lord.” Jeremiah 2:22 [AMP] -> me:  I love this picture; the simple illustration that there is nothing we can do to remove our iniquities.  When we accept Jesus our iniquity and guilt are upon Him and His death (sacrifice) purged that sin from us and God as far as the east is from the west…to be known no more.  It really begs the question – why isn’t everyone running to Jesus?
