When writing a letter and a word is misspelled how quickly we erase the word and rewrite it or even throw away the note. Sending emails to friends or coworkers sometimes have mistakes that can be easily corrected with a simple delete or backspace button. Some computer programs have spell check where words will automatically spell correctly.
What about spiritually? When we are so quick to make everything just right for friends, bosses, online chats or tweets why not make things right with God. Instead of avoiding a confession or repentance which causes a lot of discomfort we have a covenant with our God Who will eagerly erase all sin for good. He never shames anyone or laughs, He just erases our mistakes and makes a new beginning.
“Come now, let’s settle this,” says the Lord.
“Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow.
Though they are red like crimson, I will make them as white as wool.
