As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
This verse gives us an idea of how far our sins are removed from us – “as far as the east is from the west.” Now that’s a long way!
When we sin and come to God in repentance, God doesn't just forgive our sin; he purifies us of all unrighteousness. What was unholy in us is made righteous in him. What was impure is now clean.
God doesn't see our sin, but Jesus' sacrifice. His blood purifies and cleanses us!
Our sin is gone and we are clean.
Merciful Father, thank you for not only forgiving my sins, but for removing them. I am thankful that I can stand before you holy and without fault because of the cleansing blood of Christ and your gracious desire to forgive. In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen
