No More Remembrance

Today I want to point you to another reason the new covenant in Christ is better than the old covenant.  Hebrews 10:1-3, 15-17 tells us,

For the law, having a shadow of the good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with these same sacrifices, which they offer continually year by year, make those who approach perfect.  For then would they not have ceased to be offered?  For the worshipers, once purified, would have had no more consciousness of sins.  But in those sacrifices there is a reminder of sins every year... But the Holy Spirit also witnesses to us; for after He had said before, "This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the LORD:  I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them," then He adds, "Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more."

Under the old covenant, God remembered the sin of Israel every year.  This meant that each year the priest would have to go into the Holy of Holies and offer the blood of an animal to cover the people's sins.

Under the new covenant, God does not remember.

Boy, am I glad that when I accepted Christ, my past was erased on God's ledger.  I had a pretty checkered past before I came to Christ.  But if today you enter my name in God's computer up in heaven…Bayless…past…push enter…push print…God's big printer prints out nothing but blank sheets.

Why?  He doesn't remember my sins anymore.  In fact, if you and I talk to Him about our past before we were saved, He says, "Sorry, it doesn't exist as far as I am concerned." 

That is truly good news!
