Voluntary amnesia

I will put my instructions deep within them, 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. Jer 31:33

When we ask for Christ’s forgiveness whatever we’ve done or thought, no matter how often, no matter how awful, comes with voluntary amnesia on God’s part. Not only does he wipe it from His own memory but he wants to delete it and rewrite his own message on our hearts as well. No follower of Christ has to be defined or marked by past failures, not in the way we see ourselves nor in the way we see one another.

Lord, thanks for forgiving and forgetting.
