Delete

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: I know just enough about computers to be dangerous. One thing I’ve learned the hard way is the meaning of the button labeled “d-e-l.” Sometimes I’ve gotten moving too fast and accidentally deleted work that I intended to save. When you hit "delete," it’s gone forever.

I think that’s a picture of forgiveness. It’s like pressing the "delete" button. The apostle Paul says that in Christ God has "forgiven us all our trespasses, by canceling the record of debt that stood against us” (Col. 2:13–14).

In those days, if somebody owed you money, you would write a certificate against him—an IOU. The image Paul uses here is that we owed God an unpayable debt for violating His law. But when Jesus died on the cross, He canceled that IOU and forgave us all our sin. He pressed the "delete" button.

Have you repented and put your faith in Christ, asking God to delete your sin?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
