My Sins Forgiven!

Question 56. What believest thou concerning "the forgiveness of sin"?
Answer. That God for the sake of Christ's satisfaction, will no more remember my sins, neither my corrupt nature, against which I have to struggle all my life long; but will graciously impute to me the righteousness of Christ, that I may never be condemned before the tribunal of God.—Heidelberg Catechism, Lord's Day 21

No condemnation!

There is therefore now no condemnation, not in this present time nor in the great day of days as I stand before the tribunal of the Most High God! My sins are forgiven! I am righteous in Christ!

So often Jesus sent the weeping, sin-burdened sinner joyfully on his way with the assurance, Go in peace, thy sins, though they are many, are forgiven thee. Our Lord's first cry on the cross expresses his deep concern for his lost sheep and his willingness to take our guilt upon himself, when he prayed, "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do." Pentecost, with Peter's sermon and the anxious response from many hearts, "Men and brethren, what must we do?" was a powerful evidence that this prayer was heard.

Of all the benefits of salvation that might have been mentioned in the Apostolic Creed and in this Lord's Day, the fathers chose this one great, fundamental blessing as the core of the riches of grace, the basis upon which God bestows all the other blessings upon us. It is for this reason that our Catechism treats the subject of the forgiveness of sins no fewer than three times in the course of its instruction (see questions 60 and 126). This follows the pattern set before us by the Lord himself, when in the model prayer he teaches us to present our personal needs in just three petitions, the central one of which is, "Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors."

O the blessedness of him whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered! Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord imputes not iniquity!
