The final period of the school day was almost over and the clock on the wall held my attention.
I was in the 7th grade and my homeroom teacher had asked two of us to stay after school.
He wanted help cleaning the classroom and assigned chores.
I think one of mine might have been to dust off and clean the large blackboard on the front wall.
The eraser left visible reminders of recent writing; water cleared away all that remained.
I wiped the slate clean!
The LORD removes all sin from our darkened hearts.
“I, only I, am He who wipes out your transgressions for My own sake,
And I will not remember your sins (Isaiah 43:25 Amplified Bible).”
He doesn’t remember my sins; why do I?
“Therefore if anyone is in Christ [that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Savior], he is a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away. Behold, new things have come [because spiritual awakening brings a new life]. But all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ [making us acceptable to Him] and gave us the ministry of reconciliation [so that by our example we might bring others to Him], that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting people’s sins against them [but canceling them]. And He has committed to us the message of reconciliation [that is, restoration to favor with God] (2 Corinthians 5:17-19 Amplified Bible).”
