My Sin is Removed
As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.
Jesus Paid the Price for Sin
When Jesus died on the cross, He paid the penalty and broke the power of sin.
When you came to Christ through faith, you asked forgiveness of your sin. At that moment, the blood of Jesus forgave your sin. You were made right with God, and your sin was removed.
The Psalmist says that God removes your sin as for as the east is from the west.
The distance between the north and south can be measured. There is a north pole and a south pole. If you go north long enough, you reach the northernmost point on the earth. When it comes to traveling east though, you can continue forever and never reach the west. East is an unending distance from the west. God took your sin and placed it an infinite distance from you. Your sin is no longer around.
No More Guilt
So many Christians still carry the guilt of sin with them. Even though God has removed their sin, they still beat themselves up about past sins and mistakes. They feel inadequate for God to use them, and they never experience the joy of having their sin removed. They come to God, again and again, asking forgiveness for sin He has already forgiven.
They don’t really believe God has forgiven them. They don’t stand in faith when it comes to their forgiveness. They feel guilt for sins; already forgiven.
Some Christians believe God has forgiven their sin, but they can’t forgive themselves. They see themselves as second class Christians because of their sin. They don’t understand that if God can forgive them, surely they can forgive themselves. They can’t seem to accept the fact that their sin has been removed.
Are you carrying around a load of old guilt and shame from your past?
Do you find yourself asking for forgiveness of past sins?
If God has forgiven your sin, surely you can forgive yourself.
Your sin is no longer your own. It has been placed on Jesus. He carried your sin to the cross. Your sin has been removed. You don’t have to carry it around anymore because it’s no longer yours. It is time to leave guilt and shame behind. Your sin has been removed, and it’s never coming back.
Look at this promise one more time.
As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us. – Psalm 103:12

In Jesus Name,
When Jesus died on the cross, He took your sin. Your sin is no longer your own. It has been removed as far as the east is from the west.
