A self-proclaimed computer illiterate purchased a computer to help him with his business. After receiving a few pointers, he was left alone to do some experimenting. It wasn't long however, before a slightly panicked voice was heard from his office saying: "Hey, where's that 'UH-OH' button?"
What he had been looking for, of course, was the "undo" key that lets you backtrack when you've made a mistake....
Have you ever wished for one of those in your life? A provision to reverse, repair or restore what's been broken or damaged by SIN?
No doubt Peter wished he could "undo" his actions (see Luke 22:61-62). But Peter was not left in his misery. After Jesus' resurrection, He restored Peter, giving him an opportunity to reaffirm his love (John 21:15-17).
Although it is not possible to "undo" our sins, it IS possible for us to be forgiven of them! God loved us so much that He gave His Son to die on the cross for our sins (John 3:16; 1 Peter 2:24). "IN HIM we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace" (Ephesians 1:7).
God will forgive those who... believe and trust Jesus (Acts 16:30-31), turn from their sins in repentance (Acts 17:30-31), confess Him before men (Rom 10:9-10), and are baptized (immersed) in the name of Jesus for the forgiveness of sins (Acts 2:38).
Then as a Christian... when you sorrow over sin in your life, remember that God has provided a method of restoration: "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness" (1 John 1:9).
The real "key" to life is NOT the "undo" key. The Key to the abundant life and eternal life to come is CHRIST, and the forgiveness which is found ONLY in Him.
Won't YOU accept His offer on His terms?
