You Are Covered

“For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.” Psalm 103:11-12

As Christians, we now have a new identity- a child of God. I am a child of God. You are a son of God. You are a daughter of God. We have been adopted into a new family, an eternal family. When we accepted Jesus and became born again, we gained this new identity- a new identity in Christ Jesus. Rest on this truth, meditate on it and take it in.

The enemy wants to snatch this truth away from us at every possible opportunity, but we all know the enemy cannot take our salvation away once we are Christ's. So what does the enemy resort to do instead? He feeds us lies. To guard against the lies, we must counter those words of deceit with the Word and the truth of what Jesus says about us now. We are new creations! Wash in the truth of His Word and the evil one has to flee.

All of my sins are forgiven and forgotten - past, present and future sins. They are covered by the blood of Christ, who died on the cross for me and for you. God the Father won't see our sin anymore; he will see His Son.

When a person accepts Christ Jesus as his Savior, admitting that he is a sinner and is in need of Jesus - the Messiah - and follows Him - that person's sins are wiped away clean forever! Their sin, my sin and your sin has been made as white and clean as snow.

Remember - when God the Father sees you, He will see the blood of His Son, Christ Jesus, covering you. He will see you as His - a child of God!
