This is an awesome promise! If we got what we deserved it would be eternity without God because of our sin. Romans 6:23 says, The payment for sin is death. But God gives us the free gift of life forever in Christ Jesus our Lord. Ephesians 2:45 says, But God was merciful! We were dead because of our sins, but God loved us so much that he made us alive with Christ, and God’s wonderful kindness is what saves you.
Thankfully, because God loves us, he sent Jesus to die in our place so that he could take away our sin. Hebrews 10:17 says, I will forget their sins and never again remember the evil they have done. Did you know that when God looks at you he doesn't see your sin. If you have asked him to forgive you all he sees is the blood of Christ making us clean and pure.
CHALLENGE: Sometimes we have trouble forgiving ourselves. If you have asked God to forgive you, it is gone. One of Satan's tricks is to remind us of our sin and make us feel guilty and ashamed. God says that you are loved and forgiven. Who are you going to listen to?
