““I, I alone, am the one who wipes out your wrongdoings for My own sake, And I will not remember your sins.” Isaiah 43:25
It is for God’s sake that He blots out our transgressions and forgives our sin. It is His choice so that we can have fellowship with Him.
In the natural, it is hard for me to have fellowship with someone when there is something off in our relationship. I want to get it resolved so that I can connect in a real and meaningful way. I do whatever I can to resolve that off feeling. It doesn’t matter to me if I am wrong, or have been wronged. I just want to get it out of the way and move forward.
I know some people don’t want the conflict. They have a hard to addressing wrongs. I’m not one to walk on egg shells or dance around an elephant in the room. I desire for things to be addressed, if not for the sake of a relationship, for my own sake. I want the peace. Christ died for me to have it and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.
“Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation,”. 2 Corinthians 5:18
He wants us to be in unity with each other.
“being diligent to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” Ephesians 4:3
How much more is it for a perfect God to want to resolve things so He can have fellowship with us? He wanted it so much that He sent His son, Jesus to blot out our transgressions. He chooses not to remember our sin, for His sake. So He can have fellowship with us. What an amazing thought!
Prayer – Lord, thank You for desiring a relationship with me, so much that You sent Jesus to wipe out my transgressions. You didn’t want anything to keep me from relationship with You. Thank You for choosing to not remember my sins, so that I can stay in a relationship with you! Remind me that it is because of who You are, for Your sake that I have this benefit so that I will not allow my actions to keep me from coming to You. In Jesus name. amen.
