Forgiven

Isaiah 43:25 "“I—yes, I alone—will blot out your sins for my own sake and will never think of them again." NLT

Some days there is a song that just touches my heart as much as a scripture verse...

I was surfing through some "You Tube" videos and came upon a Gaither video of "It Is Well With My Soul". Of course, this is an old hymn and I've probably heard it and sung it hundreds of times, but tonight there was a verse that just reached out and grabbed  my attention in a new way.

"My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!
It is well..."  (Horatio Spafford)

How often I forget the magnitude of what the Lord Jesus did for me on His cross! When I think about my sins being forgiven, is it bliss? A GLORIOUS thought? And not just one or two of my sins...not just part...the whole thing! All of it! Gone! I bear it NO MORE!  According to Isaiah, He never thinks of them again. Why wouldn't I want to praise the Lord?

"O Dear Jesus, Please don't ever let me take Your work on the cross and my forgiveness for granted. I can never grasp the magnitude of Your love for me or the act of Your dying just for me. May I never get over the awe of it. Thank You for loving me so much."
