Blotting Out the Debt
by Charles Spurgeon

    I have spilled ink over a bill and blotted it till it can hardly be read, but this is quite another thing from having the debt blotted out, for that is not accomplished until payment is made.  A man may blot his sins from his memory and quiet his mind with false hopes, but the peace that this brings him is widely different from that which comes from God’s forgiveness of sin through the satisfaction which Christ made in His atonement.  Our blotting out is one thing; God’s blotting out is something else far higher.
