He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities.  For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us. —Psalm 103:10-12

            How far is the east from the west?  If you go east around the globe you never go west.  If you go west around the globe you never go east.  They do not meet.  Unlike north and south when after going north 12,000 miles north you would start going south for 12,000 miles or after going south for 12,000 you would start going north.  Thank God that He has not forgiven our sins just the distance of 12,000 miles, temporary, but forever! — Just as east and west forever will not meet so our sins are gone!

            Our Lord God Almighty is so loving toward us.  He does not give us what we deserve for our sins.  If He did we would be in hell.  Our hearts should be full of gratitude toward Him and we should have the desire to be with Him and to serve Him faithfully according to His desires.  May we do so.

Dear Father I thank You for removing my sin forever.  If this was not the case I would not have any hope.  Thank You.  My hope is in You.  Now may I live according to Your purposes in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus.
