A clean slate

Daily Thought

Your Word for 12 April 2024

Psalm 71:5
‘For You have been my hope, Sovereign LORD, my confidence since my youth.’

Pastor Ed RoebertWhen we gave our lives to the Lord, we were given a new clean slate Romans 5:1 says,

Therefore being justified.. (just as if I have never sinned!) by faith we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.

We need to understand what took place when the Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross. Jesus was made sin for us.

2 Corinthians 5:21 For He (God the Father) hath made Him (Jesus) to be sin for us who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.

or as the Living Bible puts it:

For God took the sinless Christ and poured into Him our sins. Then, in exchange, He poured Gods goodness into us.
Isaiah 53:6All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way and the Lord has laid on Him (Jesus) the iniquity of us all.
I Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree.

God stretched back into the past and out into the future; into the years that had not yet come, and gathering all the sin put it on the Lord Jesus.
