The Old Testament is full of the promises of God, about what He will do for man in the future.
The great news is that we now live in the time when these promises have been delivered.
Take the promise that David wrote about in Psalm 32 for example.
He wrote that the man whose transgressions and sin have been forgiven and covered will be blessed (Psalm 32 v 1).
Under the old covenant sin had to be dealt with on a continual basis, under the new covenant sin HAS been dealt with.
We have been forgiven through the shed blood of Jesus (Ephesians 1 v 7 and Colossians 1 v 13).
David write that our sin would be covered; the Hebrew word means to cover, to conceal, to engulf.
If something is covered, concealed or engulfed it cannot be seen, and this is exactly what God has chosen to do with our sin because of the finished work of Jesus Christ.
Under the new covenant God does not remember our sins any more (Hebrews 10 v 17).
It is as if He cannot see our sin, it is as if it has been engulfed, engulfed by the blood of Jesus!
We truly are blessed to be living under the new covenant, where our sin is not imputed against us.
As David wrote we really are blessed!
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that we have been forgiven and have had our sin dealt with once and for all through the blood of Jesus”.
Psalm 32 v 1…..Blessed is he whose transgressions is forgiven, whose sin is covered
