Forgiven, Forgotten Forever

There was once a celebrated court case in which the wife of a Scottish doctor examined his financial records after his death and found that a number of accounts were crossed through with a notation: “debt forgiven–too poor to pay.” She however decided that those accounts must be paid, and proceeded to sue for the money. When the case came to court, the judge asked one question: Is this your husband’s handwriting? When she replied that it was he said: “There is no court in the land that can obtain a debt once the word ‘forgiven’ has been written.”
And that is the good news of the Gospel. God’s attitude is not “I’ll forgive but I won’t forget,” but rather, “Forgiven, Forgotten Forever.” “If we confess our sins,” the Bible says, “God is faithful and forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
