Blessed are they whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. (Rom. 4:7)

I HAVE A CONFESSION. I never learned how to type. Typing was not offered when I went to high school in Canada. The academic curriculum that was required for entrance into university didn’t have room for a typing course, because it was crammed with courses in science, math, history, English, and foreign languages. Consequently, when I had to write college term papers and later edit and write professionally, I developed a crude form of hunt-and-peck typing. Fellow editors were amused to see two of my fingers dart feverishly across a manual typewriter.

When I made typing errors in those pre-computer days, I applied Whiteout generously to every page I wrote or edited. But then along came the computer.

What a relief it was to discover the delete key! It quickly became my favorite key—and still is. Now, if I insert a wrong word or want to get rid of a poorly constructed sentence, I don’t reach for Wite-Out. I simply hit “delete,” and the word or sentence is gone, gone, gone.

Aren’t you glad God deleted your sins? By His grace they are gone, gone, gone. Not even a trace of the sin that once marred your life remains.

Lead a holy life today as God’s forgiven and cleansed child!
