“As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.” (Psalm 103:12)
How far is the east from the west? Let’s suppose you decide you want to measure the distance between east and west. If you were to get into an airplane and start traveling east, you could circle the earth for the rest of your life and never find the end of east. You could fly west around our planet a zillion times and never find a point where west meets east. The fact is, neither east nor west has an end, and the space between east and west is infinite.
When you trust in Jesus Christ and the sacrifice He made on Calvary, He forgives your sins and removes them from you as far as the east is from west. In other words, God will not judge you for the sins you have committed. He erases the penalty of those sins completely.
Are there sins in your life that are burdening you? Have you ever trusted Christ and asked Him to forgive you of your sin? Have you committed sins since you became a Christian that you have not repented of? God will forgive you if you will pray and ask Him. What a comfort to know that your God will remove your sin as far as the east is from the west!
God forgives you when you repent of your sins, and He erases the penalty completely.
