Depths of the Sea



Depths of the Sea. In the book of Micah we are again reminded that spiritual restoration comes only from God. He alone can pardon our iniquity, and has made the way for spiritual restoration through the death of Christ on the cross for the sins of His people.

18 Who is a God like You,
Pardoning iniquity
And passing over the transgression of the remnant of His heritage?

He does not retain His anger forever,
Because He delights in mercy.
19 He will again have compassion on us,
And will subdue our iniquities.
You will cast all our sins
Into the depths of the sea.

Micah 7:18-19, NKJV




Depths of the Sea


In the book of Micah we are again reminded that spiritual restoration comes only from God. He alone can pardon our iniquity, and has made the way for spiritual restoration through the death of Christ on the cross for the sins of His people. Though it sounds as though God just ignores sin in verse 18, we know that God covers sin by the blood of Christ, who knew no sin. Our sins are not ignored, for they took the death of God's own Son. Nothing else would word!



What happens to the Christian who repeatedly falls back into sin? Unlike us, God does not retain His anger forever, and delights in mercy. All Christians will continue to struggle with sin in their lives until the day they meet the Lord and live with Him forever. Until then they must go to Christ; God has placed the Lord Jesus Christ between God and man. They must go to the Lord in repentance, for He will abundantly pardon their sin.



Does that mean the Christian can just sin and not worry about it? No, the true believer desires to please God above all; he agonizes over his sin and repeatedly asks God to make him more and more like Christ.


Sometimes we have the idea that there are two types of Christians, the carnal and the spiritual. Be careful with this, because all Christians truly desire spirituality; to sin with reckless abandonment because Christ will cover your sin is a deceptive state. Satan loves to make people think they are Christians when in reality they are not.



I love the end of Micah 7:19,

You will cast all our sins
Into the depths of the sea
.



Christ casts our sins so far away that they are in the deepest parts of the sea and remembers them no more! Praise God for making a way of salvation for men who do not in any way deserve it.



Go to Christ today; He alone can pardon your sins and present you righteous before a holy God.
