Our sins are forgiven. We don’t have to keep going over it with God, “woe is me I once was a sinner!” That is history, God forgave when you first confessed, and he has moved on. It’s about time we moved on too and grasped all the good plans he has for us.
- Psalm 103:12 – He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west.
- John 1:29 – The next day he saw Jesus coming to him and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!
- 2 Corinthians 5:21 – He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
- Hebrews 9:28 – so Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him.
Stop reminding me, your sins are forgiven, the past gone when you said I’m sorry, stop reminding me of your iniquities, as far as East is from West they are from you, your sins no longer a part of you, when I look at you I don’t see your past, I see someone washed in the blood of my son, someone with incredible courage, who looked their struggles in the face and asked for my amazing grace, someone full of faith, an incredible person with a purpose, there is no shame in who you are, there is no blame to be apportioned, you are no orphan, adopted into my family you are loved and cherished, free from the chains that once held you captive, the past is gone, your time is now, arise and shine, cast off that mantle of despair and take that garment over there, the garment of praise that belongs to you, be joyful and purposeful in all that you do.
