Thought from the Word

A THOUGHT FROM THE WORD

Psalms 103:12

“As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.”


Isn’t it this great news – God forgives our sin and removes them from us?He removes them far from us as the east is from the west.We can know complete forgiveness of our sins through what Jesus accomplished on the cross.Jesus paid the penalty we deserved, so that God’s justice was satisfied and His mercy flows freely to those that call on the Lord to save them.Jesus said in John 14:19 “Because I live ye shall live also.”I would like to share this little story with you:

“Some years ago, before computers, the Reuben Donnelly Company, handled magazine subscriptions for a number of publications. They had a machine that sent out the notices to people whose subscriptions had expired. One day the machine broke and a rancher in Powder Bluff, Colorado, received 9,734 notices that his subscription to National Geographic had expired. He drove the ten miles to the post office, sent his money and wrote, “Send me the magazine! I give up!”

God has flooded your life with far more than 9,734 notices of His love and blessing. He wants you to respond by giving up your self-seeking, stubborn ways and by giving in to His great goodness toward you in Christ. He wants you to be filled with heartfelt worship every day as you think about God’s great goodness and your great need.”Just remember what Jesus said: “Because I live you ye shall live also.”

Our desire should be to have our hearts right with God
