I am writing to you, little children, because your sins are forgiven on account of his name

 
I am writing to you, little children, because your sins are forgiven on account of his name

I read an account recently of a woman, Betty Nesmith. Betty had a good secretarial job in a Dallas bank. This was before computers took over. Betty ran across a problem that interested her. Wasn't there a better way to correct the errors she made on her electric typewriter? Betty had some art experience and she knew that artists who worked in oils just painted over their errors. Maybe that would work for her too. So she concocted a fluid to paint over her typing errors. Before long, all the secretaries in her building were using what she then called "MistakeOut." She attempted to sell the product idea to marketing agencies and various companies (including IBM), but they turned her down. However, secretaries continued to like her product, so Betty Nesmith's kitchen became her first manufacturing facility and she started selling her concoction on her own. Later she sold her little enterprise to the Gillette Company for $47.5 million.

Wouldn't it be great if there were Whiteout for the soul? I guess I should say, wouldn't it be great if there were a delete key for the soul? So many people are hampered by past mistakes, past sins, past errors of judgement.

Jesus died for our sins. All we have to do is ask for forgiveness. Jesus is our delete key!
