I have been teaching on reconciliation and forgiveness at church recently and a verse that keeps ‘cropping up’ is Hebrews 10 v 17.
This verse is a promise for those who live under grace, who live under the New Covenant.
The good news is that we live under grace; we live under the new Covenant (Romans 6 v 14).
This verse is written in the context of what Jesus did as our sacrificial lamb.
He died once for all sin forever (Hebrews 10 v 12 and 14).
He dealt with sin once and for all as He shed His blood on the cross.
As sin was dealt with forgiveness flowed and God decided to put in place Hebrews 10 v 17.
God is not a forgetful God; He chose not to remember our sin because of the sacrifice of Jesus.
So let me ask you thins question; if God has chosen not to remember our sin should we?
Are we to still feel guilty about what we have done wrong, are doing wrong or are going to do wrong?
The answer is no, because Jesus has dealt with all your sin (past, present and future) and you now live in a state of forgiveness.
What you should be doing instead is thanking God that you have been forgiven.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that I have been forgiven and thank you that you remember my sin no more”.
Hebrews 10 v 17…..And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more
