Phantom Sins

makethumbdetails“…Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.” {Romans 4:7-8}

Often times those who have had a limb amputated experience a condition called phantom limb. The patient has the strong feeling that the limb is not only still present, but is also still causing them pain and discomfort. They could swear that the missing limb is still attached and even wish they could scratch an itch or massage a pain in the nonexistent limb.

Sometimes as Christians we experience a similar phenomenon. If we have truly trusted Christ as our Saviour our sins are gone. He has removed our transgressions “as far as the east is from the west”. {Psalm 103} In other words our sins are GONE. We may imagine that they are still there and at times even feel a twinge of sorrow on account of them. But they are gone. Search all you want to but they are buried beneath a crimson flood too deep to ever be discovered. No need to mention them to God because He doesn’t remember them anymore. “For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.” {Hebrews 8:12}

“Would you be whiter, much whiter than snow?
There’s power in the blood, power in the blood;
Sin stains are lost in its life giving flow.
There’s wonderful power in the blood.”

Past, present and future…“Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.”

Do you know the peace and joy of the forgiveness of sins?
