They're gone

by Bruce Wadd   

 

It was one of those mental moments…when you don’t know what really happened, and it catches you off guard.

 

My wife and I had some shares that we purchased a few years ago.  I was planning on using these as collateral to do some trading on the stock exchange.  Circumstances changed and I needed to cash some in.  Then, in one of ‘those’ moments, I unintentionally ended up selling the whole lot.  However, in another part of my brain, we still owned them.  I must have had a brain explosion!

 

Several months later, upon questioning my stockbroker’s sanity about the existence of these shares, I checked on the internet…and lo and behold, they didn’t exist.  They had vanished.  Gone!  Sold!  Finished!!

 

That’s how God looks at your sin.  Jesus’ death means your sin has been dealt with…it’s gone!  ‘Paid’, says the invoice! Victory over sin can be yours in Christ…don’t let anyone tell you any different.

 

He took this list of sins and destroyed it
by nailing it to Christ’s cross.  In this way God took away Satan’s power to accuse you of sin…” 
Colossians 2:14b,15a

 

Today, accept the truth…sin is dealt with!
