God Erases Our Sins

This 1-minute devotion shares some interesting facts about pencils (like why are they so often yellow?) and some incredible facts about forgiveness. #Forgiveness #BibleLoveNotes #Bible

Do you know why pencils are typically painted yellow?

It’s because the best graphite in the 1800’s came from China and pencil manufacturers painted their pencils the color of Chinese royalty to prove they used the best. Ironically, the yellow pencil now seems very commonplace, not regal at all.

But it’s easy to understand why pencils became common--they revolutionized self-expression, and unlike chiseled stone or inked parchment, they allowed men to erase their mistakes.

Of course, that’s one reason we also love the computer. It’s even better than the pencil. Not only can we erase our mistakes, we can delete them and start over without any eraser fuzz.

But God tops them all:
"Come now, let us reason together," says the LORD. "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool” (Isaiah 1:18). 

Our God "deletes" our sins from the legal record that stands against us and writes with permanent ink "paid in full" (Galatians 3:10-14).

This is a wonderful truth to ponder daily (Psalms 103:1-3).
