Hit “Delete”

Isaiah 1:18- “…though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow…”

My article for the school newspaper was due at the end of the week. I had been working on it for an hour, but my thoughts just weren’t coming together. It lacked a certain pizazz. I decided to take a break and come back to it later. Maybe it would make sense to me when I took a look at it with fresh eyes. Or, maybe it wouldn’t, and I’d scrap it and start all over. 

Have you ever wished you could start all over? Maybe erase something you said to a friend or spouse in anger? Perhaps go back to a point in time when you made a hasty choice resulting in an unplanned pregnancy or wished you hadn’t told your parent a lie to avoid punishment? Ever wanted a “redo”—an opportunity to do it all over again—and make a better choice the next time around? A chance to wipe the slate clean?

God does, in fact, offer us the opportunity to hit that DELETE key. Even though He knows everything we have done, He is willing to forgive us.

Why would He do this? Because He loves us UNCONDITIONALLY and because He wants a relationship with us which is only possible because His Son, Jesus, paid the price for our sin.
