Romans 4:8
New International Version
Blessed is the one whose sin the Lord will never count against them."

New Living Translation
Yes, what joy for those whose record the LORD has cleared of sin."

English Standard Version
blessed is the man against whom the Lord will not count his sin.”

King James 2000 Bible
Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.

Any way you put it, your sins are GONE!  Not only that but look at this verse, “Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.”  (Hebrews 10:22)

The Lord not only does not see our sin, but He has sprinkled our heart from an evil conscience, so we should not see it anymore either!  Does that mean that we are free to sin?  When you truly know and believe who you are, God’s child, righteous through Jesus and how loved you are, you will not want to sin!

Imagine borrowing from a friend $5,000 and promising to pay it back in six months.  When the time came, you couldn't pay him and feel really bad.  A year later, you still have not paid even a cent back to him.  You feel very guilty and try to avoid your friend because you are too embarrassed and ashamed to see him.

Now your best friend finds out about your situation.  He goes to the other person and explains that he wants to pay your bill.  He hands the man $10,000.  “NO,” says the man, “he only owes $5,000.”  Your best friend says “I know.  But take the $10,000, so that you can never say that he still owes you money.”

Now, your debt has been paid, more than paid!  But if you don’t know or believe this, that debt will still be on your conscience.

Today know that your sin-debt has more than been paid!  Jesus paid it ALL!  You're cleared of sin and your conscience should be clean!
