"And their sins and iniquities will I recollect no more" (Heb. 10:17).
We know that God forgives the sins of His people, but does He forget them? It would look so. Our text suggests that He "will not remember" the sins wrapped up hostile Him by His offspring (Isa. 43:25). Believers have e'er saved a acute deal of comfortableness in this glorious brainchild.
But next God calls upon us to in the same way forgive others "even as God for Christ's interest hath forgiven you" (Eph. 4:32). Doesn't this proposition that we too should yield and forget? Perhaps you are thinking, "But Pastor, you don't know what they did to me!" True, but was it more than what was done to God when men crucified His Son? Remember, God's vow to forgive and bury the sins of His relations includes even the inhumane slaughter of His lone biological Son.Post ads:

We are tempted to think, "Well, it's trouble-free for God to forget," but specified is not the crust. God says of the sins of unbelievers that He "will NEVER forget ANY of their works" (Amos 8:7). How later can this God of "total recall" bury our sins? Does His mental representation have a convenient "on/off" controller that makes it natural for Him to grant and forget? If so, past we who do not have such as a control would have an vindication for forgiving but not forgetting. But if God has such as a switch, would He not too have to scrub His representation of Calvary, or else evermore reflect on why His Son had to die? But it cannot be that God could forget the Cross, for Revelation 5:6 joins John 20:27 to divulge that the Lord's resurrection body will forever accept the scars of the Cross, fashioning it impractical for God-or us-to ever bury His human activity for our sins.
What next is the answer to our question? Can God forget our sins? Perhaps the scholarly person has noticed that we ne'er publication that God will forget the sins of His people, but fairly that He "will not remember" them. By a intended act of His "will" He chooses to act toward us AS IF He has forgotten our sins, on the starting place of the liquid body substance of the Cross. That's how to the full and fully He has forgiven our sins. And if we are to concede others "as" God forgave us, then we too must pick to act toward others as if we have so fully forgiven their transgressions antagonistic us that we have forgotten them-also on the font of Christ's radiate humour. This and this unsocial is total mercy of others, and it is graduate supernatural terra firma so.
May God help out us to set off the new period next to a tablet wiped unused of "all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and corruption speaking...with all malice" (Eph. 4:31).Post ads:
