I, yes I, am the One and Only, who completely erases your sins, never to be seen again. I will not remember them again. Isaiah 43:25 TPT
Have you ever been told, “You’re forgiven completely!” only to have it brought up the next time you screwed up? That seems to be how we humans do things, don’t we? ‘Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me!’ We seriously have trust issues!
But that’s not how God does it at all. His forgiveness is so complete that He erases them with no residue on the chalk board. He said they are never to be seen again. How does He do that? It’s as if His deep and abiding love for us covers every sin of our past, our present and our future.
You see, God lives outside of time so His one time forgiveness covers it all. He knew what you would do before you did it and still chose to cover that as well. He saw a way to redeem us all and gladly gave His son so that we could be reconciled to Him. As the song says, “What can wash away my sin? Nothing but the blood of Jesus!”
Such love. How can we show that kind of love to those around us? James 5:19-20 says; Finally, as members of God’s beloved family, we must go after the one who wanders from the truth and bring him back. For the one who restores the sinning believer back to God from the error of his way, gives back to his soul life from the dead, and covers over countless sins by their demonstration of love!
We can even cover sin by demonstrating the love of God. That’s what I want to do, don’t you? To bring those who’ve lost their way, back to the truth of God’s grace. I’m not talking about difference of opinion or doctrinal differences, I’m talking about the truth that there is one way to God and that’s by believing on the name of Jesus. That’s the only way to be saved, not by what we do, or how we dress, but that we believe.
So my friends, if anyone tries to convince you otherwise, bring up this amazing truth found in Isaiah 43:25. God has forever forgiven you, and there’s nothing you can do to make Him remember it ever again.
Until Next Time,
