11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his love for those who fear him;
12 as far as the east is from the west,
so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
The above verses above are something you have probably heard before.
The verses below are also something that I have heard repeated often.
17 But from everlasting to everlasting
the LORD’s love is with those who fear him,
and his righteousness with their children’s children—
18 with those who keep his covenant
and remember to obey his precepts.
From these verses I realize that we need to obey Him and fear Him. I also recognize that we are not able to be perfect, which is why we have transgressions against Him.
But we also see that He has completely removed are transgressions from us. Completely!
Because he loves us…Completely!
