Can God Forget?

3/31/2022

“I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake,
and remembers your sins no more.”
Isaiah 43:25 (NIV)

Who would do such a thing; to make a choice to intentionally forget wrongs and offenses, remembering them no more? God does! God’s love is anchored in radical mercy and kindness.

In Psalm 103:12 it says God casts our sins as far as the east is from the west.  Like God’s love, the distance of the east to the west is immeasurable.  

We see that immeasurable depth of love in action through the Lord Jesus Christ – “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)”.

It is because Jesus Christ bore our sins that God can forget them all. In Him (Christ) we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us.(Ephesians 1:7). 

Yes, God wants to lavish His love and grace upon you. And it is Jesus Christ that makes that possible for all who receive Him!
