A Clean Slate

I spent the last half hour looking over the shoulder of one of my daughters as she looked up her grades on line. Lovely letters, those As and Bs for all her work over the past quarter. One of the screens shows a list of missing assignments. Those can bring her grades down. But, the semester ends on Thursday, and all those infractions get cleared. After Friday, she gets a clean slate.

Isn't it great to be forgiven? Like with insurance companies after car accidents. Or bankruptcy. Seven years later, and you get a second chance.

Second chances are awesome. That's how it is with God's forgiveness. He provides a clean slate because Jesus' sacrifice was enough to atone for our sins.

In Jesus, you can start afresh.
