His people's scars and warts (Thomas Brooks)

"I will not remember your sins." Isaiah 43:25

Caesar was painted with his finger upon his scar, his wart. God puts His fingers upon all His people's scars and warts--upon all their weaknesses and infirmities, that nothing can be seen but what is fair and lovely. "You are so beautiful, My beloved; there is no flaw in you!" Song of Solomon 4:7

"I will never again remember their sins and lawless deeds." Hebrews 10:17

The meaning is, "I will fully forgive their sins; I will never more mention them; I will never more take notice of them; they shall never more hear of them from Me!"

"I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more." Jeremiah 31:34

Though God has an iron memory to remember the sins of the wicked--yet He has no memory to remember the sins of the godly!

"I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more." Hebrews 8:12


Thank you for Your grace O, Lord.

What a relief Christians have without a guilty conscience. If I may add that God is not simply forgetting sins, but that substitutionary death of Christ made it possible.
