Trash Day

No record of wrong

Today is Thursday, and that means trash day in our neighborhood.  I took out the trash this morning and I am glad it is gone!  I figured since today is trash day, it would be a good day to throw out all of our past regrets, mistakes, and sins too!  Many of us beat ourselves up over things we have done wrong in the past.  Myself included!  The Bible is clear that love keeps no record of wrongs in 1 Corinthians 13, so we should not be keeping a record of wrongs on ourselves either!  Repentance=forgiveness=freedom!

“Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  Love never fails…”

1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Jesus cleans our past, so our sins are as white as snow.  Since we know God is love (1 John 4:16) and love keeps no record of wrongs, then God keeps no record of wrongs on those who have trusted in Jesus for their salvation!  We are clean in His eyes through Jesus, and that promise is for every person on earth!

“All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them.  And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.”

2 Corinthians 5:18-19

Not counting men’s sins against them!  That is fantastic news!  I pray everyone in the whole world receives that precious gift from God!

“For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.”

Hebrews 8:12

Remember them no more!  Take that record of wrongs and throw it in the trash today!  Thank you Jesus for the freedom you give us!  Hallelujah!

Grace and peace to you all!

Romans 5 v 8

  1. A joyful freedom that Jesus gave us, yes in deed! We do burden ourselves with wrongdoings we have done, it’s human nature if you have a conscience. Thank you Jesus for your forgiveness. And, thank you, Ryan, for this excellent reminder we should forgive ourselves.

  2. Amen Ryan. Forgetting the past and pressing on to the high calling of Christ! I am convinced that many people think it’s sacrilegious, or that it shows a lack of seriousness on our part to just forget the past and move on. But it’s not! Not if we have repented and received forgiveness. We don’t have to hold on to that sin like some kind of memento to make sure we don’t do it again. Repent, “Throw it in the Trash”, and move on in Christ.
