Jeremiah 31:21-34

Most of us played with an Etch-a-Sketch growing up. You could turn knobs, make boxes, or draw your name. You were limited by the boundaries on each side. If something ever went wrong with the drawing, you could simply shake it and the drawing was wiped clean. You could start over!

In Jeremiah 31 we are reminded that we are no longer living under the boundaries of the Law but under grace. 1 John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” Through the new covenant we can be wiped clean from a life of sin and scars.

What is on your Etch-a-Sketch today? Jeremiah 31:34 (CEV) says, “I will forgive their sins and forget the evil things they have done.” With God’s help, shake some things free in your life today and be reminded that we live under grace.
