    "Rosalind Goforth was a well-known missionary to China who, along with her husband
    Jonathan, enjoyed an illustrious career and ministry. But for many years even having
    labored for the Lord in China, Rosalind often felt oppressed by a burden of sin. She felt
    guilty and dirty, nursing an inward sense of spiritual failure.
    Finally one evening when
    all was quiet, she settled at her desk with Bible and concordance, determined to find
    out God's attitude toward the failures, the faults, the sins of his children
    . She put these
    words at the top of the page: What God Does With Our Sins. Then as she searched
    through the scriptures, she compiled this list of seventeen truths."
    __Robert J. Morgan, The Donaldson Fellowship, Nashville, TN


    What God Does With Our Sins.


    (1) Isaiah 53:6 (He lays them on His Son, the Lord Jesus)

    We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
    each of us has turned to our own way;
    and the Lord has laid on him
    the iniquity of us all.

    ____________


    (2) John 1:29 (Christ takes them away)

    The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and
    said, ;Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin
    of the world!


    ____________



    (3) Psalm 103: 11-12 (They are removed an infinite distance from us)

    For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
    so great is his love for those who fear him;
    as far as the east is from the west,
    so far has he removed our transgressions from us.


    ___________


    (4) Jeremiah 50:20 (When sought that are not found)

    In those days, at that time,
    declares the Lord,
    ;search will be made for Israel's guilt,
    but there will be none,
    and for the sins of Judah,
    but none will be found,
    for I will forgive the remnant I spare.



    ______________


    (5) Eph. 1:7-8 (The Lord forgives them)

    In him we have redemption through his blood, the
    forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of
    God's grace that he lavished on us."



    _____________



    (6) 1 John 1:7 (He cleanses them all by the blood of His Son)

    "But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship
    with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son, cleanses us from
    all sin."


    ______________



    (7) Isaiah 1:18 (He cleanses them as white as wool and snow)

    Come now, let us settle the matter,
    says the Lord.
    ;Though your sins are like scarlet,
    they shall be as white as snow;
    though they are red as crimson,
    they shall be like wool.



    ______________




    (8) Isaiah 55:6-7 (He freely pardons our sins)

    Seek the Lord while he may be found;
    call on him while he is near.
    Let the wicked forsake their ways
    and the unrighteous their thoughts.
    Let them turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on them,
    and to our God, for he will freely pardon.



    ____________



    (9) Micah 7: 18-19 (He tramples our sins underfoot)

    Who is a God like you,
    who pardons sin and forgives the transgression
    of the remnant of his inheritance?
    You do not stay angry forever
    but delight to show mercy.
    You will again have compassion on us;
    you will tread our sins underfoot



    ____________




    (10) Hebrews 10:17-18 (He remembers them no more)

    Then he adds: Their sins and lawless acts
    I will remember no more.
    And where these have been forgiven, sacrifice for sin
    is no longer necessary.


    ____________




    (11) Isaiah 38:16-17 (He casts them behind His back)

    You restored me to health
    and let me live.
    Surely it was for my benefit
    that I suffered such anguish.
    In your love you kept me
    from the pit of destruction;
    you have put all my sins
    behind your back.


    ____________





    (12) Micah 7:18-19 (He hurls all our sins into the depths of the sea)

    Who is a God like you,
    who pardons sin and forgives the transgression
    of the remnant of his inheritance?
    You do not stay angry forever
    but delight to show mercy.
    You will again have compassion on us;
    you will tread our sins underfoot
    and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.



    ___________




    (13) Romans 4:7-8 (He will never count our sins against us)

    Blessed are those
    whose transgressions are forgiven,
    whose sins are covered.
    Blessed is the one
    whose sin the Lord will never count against them.



    ____________




    (14) Romans 4:7 (He covers our sins)

    Blessed are those
    whose transgressions are forgiven,
    whose sins are covered.



    ___________




    (15) Isaiah 43:25 (He blots them out)

    I, even I, am he who blots out
    your transgressions, for my own sake,
    and remembers your sins no more.


    ___________





    (16) Isaiah 44:22 (He swept them away as a thick cloud)

    I have swept away your offenses like a cloud,
    your sins like the morning mist.
    Return to me,
    for I have redeemed you.


    ____________




    (17) Col. 2:13-15 (He cancels out even the proof against us,
    nailing it to His cross)


    "When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of
    your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our
    sins, having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which
    stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing
    it to the cross. And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he
    made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross."



    ___________
    ___________


    "For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich,
    yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might
    become rich."
    2 Cor. 8:9

    Thank you for posting this. I've been given an epiphany of forgiveness recently and these scriptures go along with the forgiveness I NEED to give others. Thank you!

    JAG, thank you so much. This really shows the love God has for everyone, even those who have yet to find Him that they too can be forgiven.

    "So happy" --- me too.

    I put those 17 verses in my "200 Notebook" which is a 6" X 8" notebook
    where I keep special Bible verses for constant review and meditation.

    I'm shooting for at least 200 verses for my notebook, but I have room for
    400. If I have to, I'll simply rename it the "400 Notebook."

    I find that a notebook that size is better than the 3 X 5 index cards that
    some people use. (1)The verses don't get misplaced. (2) The notebook
    allows one to develop an emotional attachment, which is easy to develop
    when daily handling the same book over and over as the months turn into
    years. (3) I have more room to jot down a note in the margins of the
    page.
