No Condemnation


No Condemnation

In those days, and in that time, saith the Lord, the iniquity of Israel
shall be sought for, and there shall be none; and the sins of Judah,
and they shall not be found: for I will pardon them whom I reserve.
(Jeremiah 50:20)

A glorious word indeed! What a perfect pardon is here promised to the
sinful nations of Israel and Judah! Sin is to be so removed that it
shall not be found, so blotted out that there shall be none. Glory be unto
the God of pardons!

Satan seeks out sins wherewith to accuse us, our enemies seek them that
they may lay them to our charge, and our own conscience seeks them even
with a morbid eagerness. But when the Lord applies the precious blood
of Jesus, we fear no form of search, for "there shall be none"; "they
shall not be found." The Lord hath caused the sins of His people to cease
to be: He hath finished transgression and made an end of sin. The
sacrifice of Jesus has cast our sins into the depths of the sea. This makes
us dance for joy.

The reason for the obliteration of sin lies in the fact that Jehovah
Himself pardons His chosen ones. His word of grace is not only royal but
divine. He speaks absolution, and we are absolved. He applies the
atonement, and from that hour His people are beyond all fear of
condemnation. Blessed be the name of the sin-annihilating God!
