God Forgets Your Sin and He Forgives You - What Will You Do?
Forgiveness is the best.
You will often hear someone say I forgive but I do not forget. Well, unfortunately that is not good enough. It is not. It is not even close. Not really even close. No way and no how. If God forgives and forgets all of our sin then who are we not to forgive and forget everything? I mean everything. You have to do both. Can you forgive anything and everything? He forgives you yesterday, today and tomorrow. What will you do? The Lord blots out our sin and our transgressions. All of them. Each and every one. It is taken care of. We are given mercy not judgement. You have been bought and paid for at a great price. A great price!
It is His grace and His mercy alone that can and does make all the difference in the world to our ultimate salvation. Absolutely and positively completely accounted for. Paid for at a great cost. Jesus paid the ultimate sacrifice on the cross so you and I could and would be forgiven. It is pure grace at its finest. It does not get any better. How is it that we are not supposed to forgive everything. I mean ...... Everything. God tells us He will remember our sin no more. He forgives your deeds, your thoughts, your humanity, your actions and all of your many shortcomings. There are so many for all of us. So very, very many sins. Much too numerous to even count. So we need to forgive everything. Each and every one of is a sinner. Life is way too short and you do not want it to be too late. Even if you think you are entirely and completely right you need to forgive anyway. You are not worthy and neither am I and nether is any. When you do forgive all burden is lifted and you will reach a joyful condition. If you want to be anything like Him you will have to forgive and if you choose not to He will choose not to forgive you. Remember His final commandment: "Love one another as I have loved you." Get this right as it is integral to your salvation and in fact nothing could be more important. It is the most important. We are all human and full of human frailties and we often cannot get past ourselves. In order to see your savior you must get past yourself. You are in the way. Forgive and forget and let God take care of the rest. As much as we are not like Him do your best to be just a little bit like Him. The rewards are downright incredible and you will feel His blessings to it's fullness. Forgive and you will be forgiven. Forget and your sin will be forgotten. God is so very magnificent and full of unending love. Forgive and you shall be forgiven. Condemn and you will be condemned. I would rather be forgiven how about you? Consider these bible verses on forgiveness and there are so many more:
Jeremiah 31:34 No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying know the Lord for they shall know me. From the least of them to the greatest of them says the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity and their sin I will remember no more.
1st John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Isaiah 43:25 I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake; And I will not remember your sins.
Luke 6:37 Judge not and you will not be judged. Condemn not and you shall not be condemned.
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
God bless always.
