The `undo` button on my laptop!
This is my favourite button. It is the most used and necessary of my laptop`s features. Edith Piaf used to belt out a stirring song
“(“No, I regret nothing”).
I don`t know if she lived by it, but the morphine and alcohol addiction of her later years and an early death when only 48 years old suggests all was not what it might have been. When I look back I can think of many occasions when I wish life had an undo button. But it has not. What has been said and done cannot now be unsaid or undone. But God has provided something better, at huge cost to himself, because he loved us he has provided a way that can put us right with him. The Bible says if we admit the wrongs we have done, God is faithful and just and will forgive us and purify us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9). This is real because Christ died on the cross to take the penalty for all the wrong things we have done. More than that if we trust in Christ then God will make us a new creation! Wow! Not an “undo” but a “make new” feature: that is grace.
