Thomas Watson – What is Forgiveness? (5 of 5)

12 Aug

5. God having forgiven sin, he will no longer call it to remembrance (Jer. 31:34)
The Lord will make an act of indemnity. He will not upbraid us with former unkindness, nor sue us with a cancelled bond. ‘He will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea’ (Mic. 7:19). Sin shall not be cast in like cork which rises up again, but like lead which sinks to the bottom. How we should all labour for this covenant blessing!

~Thomas Watson~
