When you think back over your life are you pleased with what you remember or are you like most who had some rough patches along the way? Sometimes when I think about it, I feel saddened because I wish I could have done better or not made the mistake. But you know what, God isn’t keeping score. And, the fact is there is nothing we can do on our own to secure our salvation and an eternal home in heaven.
Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, died for our sins (all the rough patches we had) so when we stand before God on judgment day our sins are erased with Jesus’ blood. The next time you begin to dwell on your past, remember His blood and its power to wipe your slate clean.
A final word of encouragement. God doesn’t remember your sins. Not one. So you don’t need to either.
