He accomplished this in dying our death in a human body; he fully represented us in order to fully present us again in blameless innocence, face-to-face with God; with no sense of guilt, suspicion, regret, or accusation; all charges against us are officially cancelled.
How are you living?
The criminal investigators round up crime specific suspects when they are not sure who the culprit is. They analyze the way the crime was committed, called the M.O. and create a list, called the usual suspects, of those who have that pattern within their wheelhouse. Once a person’s name is on that list, they can never break free of the stigma attached to them. They will always know the usual suspects for the wrongs they did, their past. It does not matter how old they get or how long ago it was they committed the crime.
Jesus died for you. He took on your sins, and He continually presents you before the Father.
Jude 24 Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling or falling into sin, and to present you unblemished [blameless and faultless] in the presence of His glory with triumphant joy and unspeakable delight. (Amplified Bible AMP)
Not only can you stand in the presence of God, but you can do so without fault, without blemish, without blame! You are no longer a part of the usual suspects.
Psalm 103:12 You see, God takes all our crimes—our seemingly inexhaustible sins—and removes them. As far as east is from the west, He removes them from us. (The Voice TVT)
Please agree with me as I pray:
Father, I thank You because I don’t have to live waiting for the shoe to fall. I don’t have to live waiting for my past to catch up with me and determine my future. I thank You, Father, for placing my sins in the sea of forgetfulness. Thank You for washing me and making me whole. No matter where You take me in this life, whatever I have done, it is done. I can’t change it and it can’t take from me what You’ve given me. Nothing can stop me from going to the places You ordained for me go. Nothing and no one can eliminate the peace You’ve given me. No matter what list I used to be on, I have a new way of being known. I feel Your strength and I’m thankful for Your love…
