While thinking of the ramifications of a statement like that I began to think about how my electric toothbrush functions like Jesus in my life.
Consider these “electric toothbrush” truths.
- The electric toothbrush cleans… Jesus cleans us.
but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. 1 John 1:7
- The electric toothbrush polishes… Jesus disciples and sanctifies us.
Therefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people through His own blood, suffered outside the gate. Hebrews 13:12
But know that the Lord has set apart the godly man for Himself… Psalm 4:3
- The electric toothbrush does all the work. I don’t have to vigorously move it up, down, and sideways… Jesus lives the Christian life through us and for us.
Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. 2 Peter 1:2–3
I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might. Ephesians 1:18–19
I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
Have you been cleansed by the blood of Christ?
Has He polished you into a true Christ-following disciple?
Are you relaxing and letting Christ work His wondrous power in and through you?
Think about it.
