to tell you that I am
not counting your sins.
All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through
Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that
God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not
counting men's sins against them.
do you think God is like? Do you see Him as a loving Father
or an angry judge? Are you held in His arms or seated
in His courtroom? Is He speaking words of encouragement
to you or words of judgment? Do His eyes reflect His love
and affirmation or do they instill fear in your heart?
Is God celebrating your triumphs or pointing out all your
is our tendency to become like the God we worship. If
we worship a God who is a loving Father, we will love
ourselves and will reflect His love to others. If we see
Him as an angry judge, we will live under self-judgment
and condemnation and hold others to the standards to which
we are trying to live by.
God is righteous and holy and sin cannot dwell in His
presence, the issue of our sin has been dealt with once
and for all by the death of Jesus Christ. Because of the
cross, when God looks at us, He does not see our sin but
only the precious blood of His Son. Because of Jesus'
sacrifice, we have been reconciled to God and our sins
have been separated from us as far as the east is from
the west (Psalm 103:12). What a glorious thought! God
is not counting my sins! God is not counting your sins!
Father, I thank You for not counting my sins against me.
I believe that You are not an angry judge but You are
my loving Father! I thank You for sending Your Son Jesus
Christ to die on a cross for me to take upon Himself all
my sin. I thank You that His death, burial and resurrection
have made a way for me to be completely forgiven and fully
reconciled to You as Your little child. In the name of
Your beloved Son Jesus I pray, AMEN.
