Permanent File

As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.  Psalm 103:12

Isn’t it good to know that Jesus, doesn’t keep a permanent file with our name on it.  Those files would literally take up a lot of space.  Like most business people, we handle a piece of paper once: read it, act on it, and then shred it.

Well, in more biblical terms: Jesus hears our confessions, forgives us, and removes the sin from the file forever.  Yes, He tosses them in a basket on the far side of the earth and burns the content every single day.  Yes, we have so much to be thankful for every day.  Our Savior deals with our sin so thoroughly, and gives us a fresh start.   The way that He deals with us proclaims that while we are worthy of His saving grace and mercy, our confessed sin isn’t.
