The Bible tells us Jesus died one time. Once for all the sins we’ve committed so far and all those we have yet to commit.
“For Christ … died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust…” 1 Peter 3:18
Once. For all sins. For all His children. For all time.
Yet some of us trudge through life in the guilt and shame of the sins God has no record of. As if Christ needs to die again for the sins that still plague us.
As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us. Psalm 103:12
If Almighty God can forget our sins and remove them from His memory and record, why can’t we? Paul says in Romans there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus (that’s you and me).
We may never Ctrl-Alt-Del all memory of our sins, but we can prevent them from haunting us or condemning us, defining who we are today. Paul teaches,
“Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
