I once found a drawing that someone had made on the white board in a room where I teach a Wednesday night class at church. The drawing appeared to have been made by a child in elementary school. The problem was that the artist had used a permanent marker. Not to worry. He or she left a note of apology…written on the white board with the permanent marker!
It wasn’t such a big deal to clean up. Just a few minutes of hard scrubbing with a cleaning solution took care of the problem.
If only it were so easy to remove the stain of our sins! That is a job that is impossible to do ourselves. We have to trust Jesus to do that for us.
“The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, ‘Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!’”—John 1:29.
