Though your sins are like scarlet,they shall be as white as snow;though they are red like crimson,
they shall be as wool......as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.....For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.
Isa. 1:18 Ps. 103:12 Heb. 8:12
Forgiveness. The Bible is crammed full of assurances that our sins are forgiven. Everywhere you look, God tells us that all we need do is just ask, and we will receive it. Yet, sometimes it is hard to really believe that God is so willing to just make our sin disappear like the morning mist. It was not an easy job for Jesus to achieve this for us, but for us it is simple. God is waiting to receive us, no matter what our sin is. He is on the road looking out for us. He doesn't want any excuses or explanations. He is just waiting to throw a party.
