Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more.
The power behind this verse is mind blowing. If I am a Christian, God does not remember my sin and my lawless acts. What? Our human brain can hardly comprehend this thought. We can’t comprehend the thought because we hold onto grudges and can even remember when someone was mean to us 20 years ago. But, God is not like us. God loves unconditionally. When God looks at you, He doesn’t see your sin —He sees His perfect son, Jesus. What a beautiful concept.
When Jesus died on the cross, he paid for ALL your sins. Therefore, there is no reason for Him to remember your sins because that debt has been paid for. What would be the point? Christ paid too great of a price, his life, to keep remembering your sins. The next time your past is haunting you, and you think you will never be good enough, remember: God doesn’t remember your past. He only sees your beautiful future with Him. Embrace that future and walk with Him.
Father, Honestly, when I read this verse I think to myself, “this is too good to be true.” But, God I know it is true. I know Your love is unconditional and because You loved me so much, You sent Jesus to pay for my sins. You sent Your perfect son to pay for my imperfect life. Thank you! I love You and am forever thankful that You are my Lord and Savior.
