God Completely Forgets
“As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.” Psalm 103:12 (NKJV)
Isaiah put it this way: “I have blotted out, like a thick cloud, your transgressions, and like a cloud your sins.” Transgressions committed by us, when covered by the blood of Jesus, shall never be mentioned again.
When a criminal is pardoned, his past crime is often brought up by those who know him. Some say, “His crime will follow him to his grave.” The state and the law of the land may completely pardon him–but his enemies will never forget the crime he committed; and though his friends may never question it, they, too, will remember.
But God is not like that. God will never mention nor remember our sins. He will never throw them in our face; they are gone forever in the depths of the sea — blotted out as a thick cloud, never to be remembered against us.
“He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” John 3:18 (NKJV)
