But this is the new covenant I will make with the people of Israel on that day, says the LORD: “I will put my laws in their minds, and I will write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. And I will forgive their wickedness, and I will never again remember their sins.”
Hebrews 8:10, 12 (NLT)
We get married and say, “For better or for worst.” We buy a house and sign a loan agreement. We get bids on a job and award a contract. We accept a job for an agreed-upon salary. We live much of our life with promises, contracts, pledges, and covenants. How difficult is it when one of them is broken? Doesn’t it play havoc with our life? That is why I find it fascinating that God has actually made a covenant with us. Who are we that God would make us a promise? And yet what a promise He has made. And what I love the best is God does not break His promises. In today’s passage, God is saying that He is making a covenant with us. He promises to make us His people by working in our heart and mind. He promises to be our God. And then He takes away the one hindrance toward the fulfillment of the covenant, our sins. Yes, our own sins would have breached our relationship. It is our sins that separate us from God, but by His mercy and grace, He even takes care of that! He promises to forgive all our sins! He makes a covenant with you and I to absolutely forgive our wickedness and to never, never, not ever remember any of our sins. How great is that? How awesome? Only God could make a promise like that! Only God can keep it. Today, take God at His word and confess all your sins to Him. Accept His unconditional love for you. Accept His forgiveness for all your wrongdoing.
Father, thank You for Your precious promises. Thank You for promising to never remember any of my sins. I come to You today for total forgiveness and freedom.
