I know I have an accuser, and I know I’ve given him reasons to accuse me.
But I also know that You, O Lord, have removed those reasons as far as the east is from the west –
and because of that, I can stand before You confidently and without shame.
“For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us.” –Psalm 103:11-12 (ESV)
“My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world. And by this we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments.” – 1 John 2:1-3 (ESV)
