Hebrews 8:12 “For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.”
“And I will remember their sins no more.” What a remarkable promise!
God doesn’t just forgive. He forgets. He erases all trace from the board. He destroys the evidence. He doesn’t remember my mistakes. For all the things He does do, this is one thing He refuses to do, remember.
He refuses to keep a list of my wrongs. When I ask for forgiveness, He doesn’t pull a clipboard out and say, “But I’ve already forgiven you a 101 times.” He doesn’t remember.
“As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.” Psalm 103:2
“Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow.” Isaiah 1:18
You may remember the things you did, even though you’ve asked forgiveness, but, He doesn’t remember.
Galatians 3:27 “For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.”
We have ‘put on Christ’. When God looks at us He doesn’t see us, He sees Christ. We wear Him. We are hidden in Him.
Do yourself a favor. Purge your cellar of guilt and regrets for things you’ve asked forgiveness for. Take the Roman nails of Calvary and board up the door.
God doesn’t remember those things.
