Are your sins really gone for good?
March 11, 2013
And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross.
Several months ago, a friend of mine in the IT business told me about a computer virus that once hit computers all over the world. There were several companies, in fact, who lost all of their data because of this virus. Essentially, the user would log in to his or her computer and find that the data which was there before had now been completely erased.
So I asked my friend, “So what happens to all that data? Where does it go?” And he told me, “It goes nowhere! It just disappears. All the records, files, everything… just gone!”
As I thought about what he told me, I began to consider what happens to the records of our sin when we come to the cross of Jesus Christ. By His death, He introduced a malfunction into that record that resulted in its complete elimination. It’s gone, and will never be recovered nor counted against us!
That’s what grace does… it takes the record of our sin and completely nullifies it so that we can never be held guilty for it. So if you’re in Christ, thank God for that reality today and live in the amazing freedom you’ve been granted by your faith in Jesus!
PRAISE GOD FOR THE WONDERFUL TRUTH THAT IF YOU’RE IN CHRIST, YOUR SINS ARE GONE AND WILL NEVER BE COUNTED AGAINST YOU!

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013
While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.
That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.
This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”
The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.
