Our Jesus Eraser

English Audio Version

Life is a chalkboard.

Okay, let’s restate that for the younger generation.

Life is a markerboard. We start out blank, and as we move through life, people write on our markerboard, then we write on our markerboard, and from time to time, we must clean the surface to have room to write more.

Some marks become so embedded they can’t be completely wiped away. The stains become part of who we are.

Sometimes we divvy up our markerboard into yesterday, today, and tomorrow (our “to do” list). We leave things we want to remember, and we mark off things as we get them done.

It’s easy for our “to do” list to get out of control, longer and longer, never quite getting completed. We need help getting caught up.

Philippians 4:19 tells us:

“And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”

In markerboard terminology, this verse tells us that Jesus is our eraser. He comes to us, looks at our markerboard, and wipes our needs away.

Jesus will help us with our to do list, and it will grow shorter and shorter; until one day we look up, surprised, to find every problem is gone, erased by the Savior.

Not even a stain will remain. Zapped. Gone. As blank as new, ready for us to start a new story.

Tomorrow is our clean slate when Jesus wipes our past clean.
