In the famous definition of love by the apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 13 verse 4 - 7, one of the hallmarks of love is that it keeps no record of wrongs.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered,  it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

This property of love that forgives and erases wrongs is what makes long term and even eternal relationships based on trust possible. When all records of wrong are erased, friendships and marriages can be renewed everyday with trust and tenderness because they are not encumbered by the weight of guilt or bitterness.

Our God, being love Himself, demonstrates His faithfulness to clear all records of wrongs.

In Psalm 103 verse 11 - 12, it reads;

For as high as the heavens are above the earth, So great is His lovingkindness toward those who fear Him.

As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us.

Here, the Lord is shown to completely separate from any trace of transgression from those who fear Him.

Again in Hebrews 8 verse 12, we see the same promise;

For I will be merciful to their iniquities, and I will remember their sins no more.

The Lord will not remember the sins of His people and they will be able to boldly go before the throne of grace before our God who is merciful.

Bless our wonderful God.
