“God loves a cheerful sinner”

The mistakes we make can—and probably will—bump us into better paths. You might say, “God loves a cheerful sinner!” That is, one who missed the mark and now found a higher one.

So you did not attain your goal? So what? Your sin—missing the mark—was good, valuable in reaching a better one, in putting you further along the road with no end. What is abolished is not sin (that is, missing the mark) but guilt (that is, getting stuck in the past). What is abolished is not sin but the past. That is why it is said God remembers your sin no more: it does not exist because the past does not exist.

God has no memory for his people. He only knows now.
