Colossians 2:14 (The Message) "Think of it! All sins forgiven, the slate wiped clean, that old arrest warrant canceled and nailed to Christ’s cross".
In 2014, Taylor Swift wrote a song called Blank Space, poking fun at all her multiple failed romances and the casualties she's left behind. Though her relationships were at a loss, her song won a Grammy for Song of the Year..crazy!
I'd like to put a little twist to her song title, to help you remember this very helpful principle when dealing with your close relationships. Here it is: Blank Slate! If God has wiped the slate clean with all our sin, how about if we wipe the slate clean at the close of every day with other's sins against us?
Ephesians 4:26-27 says to “Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil." In other words, wipe the slate clean every night and wake up the next day with a clean slate, totally empty, no records of wrongdoing against anyone. Don't mess up today with your wife, or husband, or best friend, or boss, or neighbor's mess ups (intentional or unintentional) from yesterday.
Paul said there is one thing that he does…forget those things that are behind and reach forward to those things ahead (Phil. 3:13). If you need to confront something, do it in a godly way, then regardless of the outcome, move on! Forgive! Let it go! Start each day with a blank slate baby!
