As Far as the East is from the West

Psalm 103:12As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

Hebrews 10:17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.

When we believe that Jesus Christ is Lord and that God raised him from the dead (Romans 10:9-10) we receive remission of sins. God removes our iniquities as far as the east is from the west and remembers them no more. What a beautiful figure of speech! If you go north and reach the north pole you begin to go south. However, if you go east you will never reach the west! God cast our sins as far as the east is from the west. What a wonderful God.
