When we confess our sin to God, through faith in Christ and in true repentance, the sin is dealt with. Period! It is covered with the blood of Christ; paid for in full. Psalm 103v12 puts it like this: ‘As far as the east is from the west so far has he removed our transgressions from us.’ – You can usually measure the points between north and south but east and west never meet, they just keep on going. That’s a symbolic portrait of God’s forgiveness. When he forgives us He removes our sin, our transgressions from us and doesn’t even remember them.
