    Reminds me of the story of the devil appearing to Luther with a list of his sins (actually, numerous lists). Luther simply told him to go away – all of them were dealt with by the Lord Jesus. All that matters is taking His gift and trusting in what the brings -everything else will be changed, in a moment, when He returns.

    Yes, or Spurgeon when congratulated on his brilliant sermon: ‘Too late sir, the devil told me the same thing as soon as I left the pulpit’..

    Yes, education’s gone sadly downhill since our day. Imagine how many poor kids leave school without these basics

    Thanks for this Emma – rich Biblical insight here. Wonder if ‘report card’ might be a helpful image to have in mind when thinking of the ‘record of debt (Col 2:14 ESV)’ – keirographon – that is nailed to the cross. I often remember the ‘big’ sins are dealt with, but somehow still hold the smaller ones against myself.
