The God Who Remembers Part 3

It was King David who cried out, “Do not remember the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions; according to your mercy remember me…” (Psalm 25:7). In essence, David was asking God not to remember what he did wrong in his past.  David writes in Psalm 103:12, “As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.”  David was an Old Testament believer who had an understanding of forgiveness that many Christians today don’t possess.  If God doesn’t remember your past, then why should you?  If the heavenly Father has forgiven you, then why should you walk in guilt and shame?

Why is it possible to walk free from your past?
Hebrews 10:11-25

  1. Because Jesus became a man.

 

“But this Man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God.” Hebrews 10:12

Humanity is hopeless and cannot save itself – God had to become one of us to reach us.

 

  1. Because Jesus did it all through his death and resurrection.

    “For by one offering he has made perfect forever those who are being sanctified.”  Hebrews10:14

    His be the Victor’s Name who fought our fight alone; Triumphant saints no honor claim, Their Conquest was His own.

John 8:9-11 (the woman caught in adultery)

  1. Because God remembered his Covenant.

    “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days says the Lord.”
    Hebrews10:16 (Jeremiah 31:31)

    God remembers his covenant, therefore he doesn’t remember our sins.

    “Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.” Hebrews 10:17

    I hear the accuser roar, of ills that I have done, I know them well and thousands more, Jehovah findeth none.

Verses 19-25 are a picture of how a forgiven disciple of Jesus lives!
