If you could know beyond a shadow of a doubt that God had completely forgiven you, what reason would you have to keep feeling guilty? Absolutely none.
And God offers you exactly that: complete and total forgiveness, no matter what you have done. Jesus willingly took your sins and mine upon Himself, and He paid the penalty we deserved. We don’t need to wonder if we’ve been forgiven; we don’t need to carry around a burden of guilt.
As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
