Forgiveness, Full & Free

He will again have compassion on us,  And will subdue our iniquities. You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea.” – Micah 7:19

Just before Christmas, I got a telephone call from my credit card company. They were following up on some “suspicious activity” on my credit card.

“Did you use your card at Bed, Bath and Beyond?” the young lady asked. To the best of my recollection I’ve never even been in a Bed, Bath and Beyond! (I’m not going to lose my man card without a fight!)

Anyway, there was an attempt to make a charge there and to an on-line business which threw up red flags for the credit card folks. “What about those charges?” I asked, assuming there was some enormous process I must now go through in order to set things right.

“They aren’t yours and we’ll take care of them,” she said. I’m not sure what “take care of them” means. Maybe they are at the bottom of the Hudson River in cement shoes, or maybe they took a one way ride down a desert road. But, I do know they aren’t mine and they are off my account.

The Bible tells us we have the same option with our sins. Oh, those are ours, but God has promised to “take care of them,” if we will give them over to Him.

My prayer for you this week is that you will experience the freedom and joy of forgiveness and, in turn, God will grant it in abundance.
