While He’d be #Justified, God Holds No #Grudge –

Open bible with man and cross

Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile (Ps 32:2)~ Sin is the cause of our miseries; but praise the Lord that our transgressions of the Divine law are all forgiven, being covered with the atonement. Christ bore our sins past, present and future, therefore they are not imputed to us. The righteousness of Christ being reckoned to us, and we being made the righteousness of God in Him, our iniquity is not imputed, God having laid upon Him the iniquity of us all, and made Him a sin-offering for us. Not to impute sin, is God’s act, for He is the Judge. It is God that justifies! Not our goodness; not our ritual; not our pastor; nor our position; nor our title; nor our acquaintances! Sin created a debt that no man could satisfy. But He would rather us not suffer the death of our souls in eternal separation from Him, for God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him shall have everlasting life (John 3:16). So what should be the character of those whose sins are pardoned? Does the fact that God has already taken care of the eternal obligations of our sin mean that we can just do whatever? I think not. God’s pardoned are not so deceitful! They are sincere, and seek sanctification by the power of the Holy Ghost. They do not profess to repent, with an intention to indulge in sin, because the Lord is ready to forgive. They will not abuse the doctrine of free grace. To know and understand the pardon under which we live should drive us to desire God’s honor and glory upon us, not desiring to intentionally commit evil. To the one whose iniquity is forgiven, all manner of blessings are promised.
