A New Year

There was a Pearls Before Swine cartoon in the paper a few weeks back.  It features a mouse and a pig.  The mouse has a Smart Phone.  I don’t have one but I am thinking of getting one after reading this cartoon.

 

The mouse pushes a button and the phone reads: Clear Recent Calls…

 

Another button: Delete Chat History…

 

Another button: Clear Browser History…

 

Another button: Delete All Texts…

 

Another button: Erase Everything Bad You’ve Ever Done in Your   Life…

 

Final frame: Smart Phones just get better and better!

 

Would it be great to have a button to push and: Erase Everything Bad You’ve Ever Done in Your Life!!!  Well, as Christians we do.  It is called baptism: Repent and be baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins (Acts 2:38).  As Christians it is called prayer. …if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father; and he is the expiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.

Starting over!  It is a great blessing.  As the new year begins it creates an opportunity for us to start over.  Press that, Erase Everything Bad You’ve Ever Done in Your Life, button.  Resolve to be the best Christian that you can be.  Resolve to be an asset to the church and to build up and encourage other Christians.  Resolve to win someone to Christ!
