The Remembrance of Sin

For I know my wrongdoings, And my sin is constantly before me.

Psalm 51:3 (NASB)

When we talk about the crucifixion of Christ which enabled us to receive God's forgiveness for our sins, in our minds we are always referring to the sins of others, never our own. The reason is very simple, we do not want to admit that we sin like them or more than them. We want to believe that we are cleaner than others. Do you know that such a thought removes you from the list of those forgiven in Christ Jesus?

You have to start seeing things differently and tell yourself that Christ did not take the cross for others but for you. You must have the courage of David to humble yourself as he did and admit as he did: “Against You, You only, I have sinned and done what is evil in Your sight,” As much as you are unwilling to face your sins and confess them before God, the power of the cross will never be able to extract them from your life to cleanse you and restore your relationship with God.

God loves those who feel remorse and are grieved because they have sinned, for it is when we reach that point of pain that we feel the need to seek His face. I would like to tell you this, if God did not want us to remember our sins, He would have erased them from our memory once we were forgiven. If He did not do it, it is because He wants to remind us that we need His grace every day and that it is out of love for us that He has forgiven us. Always remember this!

May the grace and peace of God be with you all.
