Wiped Clean

Colossians 2:14He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross (NLT).

God not only made you right through Christ, He erased your every wrong. He canceled the record of charges against you. Another version says your slate was wiped clean (MSG).

You may be thinking, “Whoa, hold up there, Mike. You don’t know how big of a piece of slate we’re talking here.” It doesn’t matter. The skeletons in your closet were all nailed to the cross with Jesus.

After listing several different sins the unrighteous were known for, Paul wrote this in 1 Corinthians 6:11 — “And such were some of you. But you were washed” (NKJV). In other words, you might have been a liar, cheat, addict, adulterer, or thief, but all of your wrongs were washed in the blood of Jesus. Hallelujah!

Stop fretting over charges that God has already dropped. Someone will always remind you of your past, and the devil will never stop accusing you of it, but God has given you a fresh start in Christ.
