He has made perfect forever
those who are purified from sin.
Uncertain about a verb tense in one of these devotionals, I ran it through an online grammar-checker. When finished, I moved the cursor over the article and hit delete. I failed to cover the first letter with the cursor, so only that one letter remained on the page. This message appeared on the screen: “That was quite an improvement.” Ouch!
Redaction is the process of removing information from a document by blacking out sensitive text.
God read your life script, and wherever he found sin in the past of your blood-bought soul, he redacted it (Eph 1:7). The sin is gone; no longer remembered (Heb 10:17).
The script was retyped. All that’s left on the page is a note that you are justified and declared righteous (Rom 5:1; 10:4; 2 Cor 5:21).
That is quite an improvement.
Being justified is more than being declared
“not guilty.” It is being declared “righteous.”
