“I’ll wipe the slate clean for each of them. I’ll forget they ever sinned!” Jeremiah 31:34
As a kid in grade school, it was a privilege to be picked to wipe the blackboards after school. Every Friday the board needed to be washed to make it look new again. Today we use computers that connect to a projector to flash information from a file on to a screen. A “delete” button gets rid of the file, but it can be retrieved, if needed, from a virtual trash can.
Consider how God wipes our slate of sin clean. We connect to him through prayer and ask him to cleanse us of all our sins. He forgives us! There’s no need for a virtual garbage can, because in God’s eyes our sins are forgotten—gone forever.
Lord, thank you for the ability to connect to you through prayer. Amen.
