One Big Eraser

My eraser wipes out my mistakes—even the big ones. Things thought to be incorrect, but later were found correct, can change our view of things. What about something not recorded, like our opinions, our words, or our actions toward others? Do they change with more information?

Our imperfect bodies are changing every day, sometimes, in a moment as fast as the twinkling of an eye (I Corinthians 15:52). Our blinks take less than a second. But, God works faster than a twinkle in changing the saints’ vile, sinful bodies into glorious heavenly ones.

There is a reason to believe all our deficiencies will disappear. They will not exist in our new bodies. So, how will we look? James tells us that we will be like Jesus (I John 3:2).

Yet, somehow, we will be recognizable. Will we bear the scars, hurts and deformities of this life? Probably not. Everything will be new and perfect. God will change us. However we are, it will be glorious.

One thing is for sure. God’s eraser is thorough, no smudge marks, no past sins remembered. They are gone as far as the east is from the west (Psalm 103:12). There will be no conversations in heaven about our past sins. All things are pure and holy there.

If only we could grasp that thought here in our present body. What a difference this world would be. 

Rejoicing in the presence of our Lord is beyond our mind’s ability to comprehend. Purity without the presence of evil. We will never experience that wholesomeness here. It is the fundamental element of heaven. A life we can cherish and enjoy in the presence of our Lord forever.
