Remember

Hebrews 8:12 (NASB)


And their sins I will remember no more.


This verse does not mean that God has amnesia or dementia. Many saints misinterpret this verse to mean that God somehow forgets the past. That is impossible for the perfect mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16). It is also not as if the things of the past had not happened. The foreknowledge of God Almighty makes Him aware of all our sins, past, present, and future. It is not due to lack of awareness or forgetfulness that God does not remember our sins any more. On the contrary, the all-knowing God chooses not to remember our sins when the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ covers our souls. In the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ, God has chosen to forget the things of the past, not because they have not happened, but because an innocent Man settled our dues and paid the penalty for our sin on the cross. It is a conscious and deliberate act of mercy and love on God's part to forget the past (Isaiah 43:18-19), not because they have not happened, but because He chooses to do so because of the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ.
