Foundations of Christ - Part 3
By The Blood Of Jesus
Here are two things that By the Blood of Jesus, God can do for us.
The first thing is He can hurl all of our iniquities into the sea:
Who is a God like You who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of His inheritance? You do not stay angry forever, but delight to show mercy. You will again have compassion on us; You will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea (Micah 7:18-19 - NIV).
Our sins are lost at sea. You should never go fishing for them. God steps on them, and His enormous foot squashes them. These pictures are to show you the attitude of His forgiveness towards you and me.
The second thing that the Blood of Jesus does in connection with God's forgiveness to us is that He can forget our sins. No, we don't do this well, but He does and that is what matters.
I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My sake; I will not remember your sins (Isa. 43:25).
Because sin is such an abomination to God, for even His sake He will blot out, and totally remove from His memory (which only He can do), all of our sins. We are free as if we never committed one sin in the mind of our heavenly Father. How? By the Blood of our Lord Jesus.
We thank you Lord Jesus for Your shed blood. It never loses its power. We declare that we are totally and fully forgiven. Thank You, Lord, for not having any record of our sins. Because we are free, we are not under condemnation anymore.
