Browsing in the school supply section of a store recently, I noticed a product called Jumbo Eraser. This eraser was huge—I refer you back to the name—and it had a clever phrase printed on it: “For Big Mistakes”.
If only we had a big eraser that could take away all the mistakes we make in life! I don’t know about you, but I can make some sizeable blunders. It would be nice if we could just wipe the slate clean of all our sins, especially the big ones.
While we can’t remove our sins, Jesus can atone for them. Even the biggest sins can be washed away by the blood of Jesus. His death on the cross makes it possible for us to be forgiven and have the guilt of our sins removed from our lives.
“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.”—1 John 1:7.
