Pardoning Iniquity


“He will again have compassion on us, and will subdue our iniquities. You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea. You will give truth to Jacob and mercy to Abraham, which You have sworn to our fathers from days of old.” Michah 7:19-20

I am struck again in thought of how amazing it is that God casts our sins far from us. The depths of the oceans are great. In Psalm 103:6-14, David mentions that our sins are, “as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.” The East and the West, they never meet. God’s mercy is even greater. His mercies are as big as the heavens are above the Earth for those who fear Him.

Praise God that through His son, Jesus Christ, our sins can be removed. God is calling all to repent of our ways and to turn back to Him. Then we can be like David and proclaim, “He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor punished us according to our iniquities.”  How joyful and uplifting that can be.
