SIN KEYED OUT BY JESUS


What is this idea of "covering" or "hiding" sin? It means that there are circumstances where God will refuse to see our sin. I like to picture that as being like the technique used in video and film. It’s called the chromakey technique and requires filming in front of a blue or green screen. Then, the technicians "key out" or remove all of the blue or green in the image (essentially, they filter out the blue or green). As a result, anything blue or green will become invisible, and you can composite any other image you’d like behind you.


A friend of mine once took some chromakey stills of a video we did in front of a green screen and put me on the planet Mars. The picture looked real. In fact, this week a friend sent me to a You Tube video where the weatherman had forgotten that his green tie would be "keyed out." He was halfway through his weather report when he realized that he was wearing part of his weather map around his neck. You couldn’t see his tie, you only saw the weather map where the tie had been.


Anyway, we are "well-off" when our shortcomings are "keyed out" by the blood of Jesus. God no longer looks at what we have failed to do or what we did wrong. God sees the sacrifice of Jesus as the Son. Wouldn’t you like to have your record of failures and missed opportunities erased?
