What God Does With Our Sins

I was just looking through Rosalind Goforth’s book, Climbing, for another post I am working on, and came across this study she did. I thought it might be a blessing to some.

She was often oppressed and burdened with a sense of sin, even though she knew she was forgiven, even after she was a missionary to China. One evening she searched the Scripture, determined to find out what the Bible said God did with out sin. This is the result of her study (wording and emphases are hers):

1. He lays them on His Son — Jesus Christ. Isaiah 53:6

2. Christ takes them away. John 1:29

3. They are removed an immeasurable distance — as far as the east is from the west. Psalm 103:12

4. When sought for are not found. Jeremiah 50:20

5. The Lord forgives them. I John 1:9, Ephesians 1:7, Psalm 103:3

6. He cleanses them ALL away by the blood of His Son. I John 1:7, Revelation 1:5

7. He cleanses them as white as snow or wool. Isaiah 1:18, Psalm 51:7

8. He abundantly pardons them. Isaiah 55:7

9. He tramples them underfoot. Micah 7:19 (ASV: KJV says “subdue)
10. He remembers them no more. Hebrews 10:17, Ezekiel 33:16

11. He casts them behind His back. Isaiah 38:17

12. He casts them into the depths of the sea. Micah 7:19

13. He will not impute us with sins. Romans 4:8

14. He covers them. Romans 4:7

15. He blots them out. Isaiah 43:25

16. He blots them out as a thick cloud. Isaiah 44:22

17. He blots out even the proof against us, NAILING IT TO HIS SON’S CROSS. Colossians 2:14
