God Sees You As If You’d Never Sinned

God Sees You As If You’d Never Sinned

You will tread our sins beneath your feet; you will throw them into the depths of the ocean! (Micah 7:19, MSG).

King David broke the 6th and 7th commandments. So, how could God say this about him? My servant David, who kept my commandments and followed me with all his heart, doing only that which was right in my sight (1 Kings 14:8)?

When we repent, God casts our sins into the depths of the seas; as far away as the east is from the west, God removes our transgressions from us. The God who could say of that of sinful David, is the same God who counts us as sinless for Christ’s sake, when we trust in the Saviour.

Jesus told his disciples, “You have already been cleansed” (John 15:3). Two chapters earlier we find them far from clean: they are wrangling as to who would be greatest, and refusing to wash one another’s feet. Jesus washed their feet, and pronounced, “You are clean” (John 13:10). Later, in prayer, he tells the Father, “They have kept your word” (John 17:6).

When God looks at us he sees us through the Cross. Though we have failed in many ways to keep the word of God, yet for Christ’s sake God says of us, “You are clean. You have kept my word.”

We are “accepted in the Beloved” (Ephesians 1:6 KJV). We are “complete in him” (Colossians 2:10). That’s the gospel. – Des Ford

Eli’s Reflection: Think about your own life. Can you imagine God saying about you, that you kept his commandments and followed him with all your heart, doing only that which was right in his sight? Does that seem unbelievable to you? Why? What needs to change in your heart so that you will believe?

That’s when it dawned on me. That I don’t believe in me. And that I don’t believe I can succeed. In anything. You know how our world teaches us that we should believe in ourselves? And believe that we can do anything and everything? That we should chase after our dreams? That we should trust in ourselves? That we should believe we can do whatever we set our minds to? And so on?

Come Back to Jesus!

How about you, friend? May I ask you this? Have you turned from your sins and received Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Is your life truly devoted to Him? Do you bear the fruit of a life lived for Christ? And, if so, are you taking the love, time, and care daily to tell the world about Him? Are you sold out to Jesus? And to telling people the only way to everlasting life is through Christ?

When God Chooses Your Life

What if you surrendered your life 100% to the Lord Jesus Christ? Not holding anything back? Willing to yield to Him your plans, dreams, agenda, calendar, time, heart, your work life, your social life, your entertainment life, your romantic life, your family life, your travel life, your sports and hobby life, your housing, your plans, your absolutely everything? Would your life look the same as it does right now? Or would it be entirely different? Or perhaps somewhere in between?

I Know You Have a Plan

I knew even before I was born, the Lord had already planned my life not to mention my life’s purpose. I knew He knew every detail of all to which He would call me, exactly how He would enable me and provide for me, how He would lead me, the help He would send me, everything, absolutely everything, necessary for me to fulfill the life and life’s purpose to which the Lord has called me.
