East from West, God Wants You

As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our
transgressions from us.” Psalm 103:12 (NIV)

How far is the east from the west?  Further and further by the
moment. Travel west and you can make laps around the globe and
never get east.  Journey east and, if you desire, maintain an easterly
course indefinitely.  Not so with the other two directions.  If you go
north or south, you’ll eventually reach the North or South Pole and
change directions.  But east and west have no turning point.

Neither does God.  When he sends your sins to the east and
you to the west, you can be sure of this: he doesn’t see you in your
sins.  His forgiveness is irreversible.  “He does not treat us as our sins
deserve or repay us according to our iniquities” (Psalm 103:10 NIV).

Headline this truth: when God sees you, he sees his Son, not
your sin.  God “blots out your transgressions” and “remembers your
sins no more” (Isaiah 43:25 NIV).  No probation. .Not expectations. No
reversals.

He did his due diligence.  He saw your secret deeds and heard
your unsaid thoughts.  The lies, the lusts, the longings – he knows
them all.  God assessed your life from first day to last, from worst
moment to best, and made his decision.

I want that child in my kingdom.

You cannot convince him otherwise.
