People talk about forgiving and forgetting, but I find it really hard sometimes, maybe even impossible. Is that bad?
‘As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.’ (Psalm 103vs12 – read it here: http://bit.ly/1eQnPon)
If we believe that God knows everything, then how is it possible that He forgets our sins? Does He develop some kind of spiritual amnesia? I don’t believe so. In fact I think it is so much more powerful if God, remembering my sins, chooses not to hold them against me.
When God looks at me, He now sees Jesus and the sacrifice He made on the cross and treats me as if I have never committed any of those sins. When I ask for forgiveness, I can rest assured that it is freely given.
