Years ago I remember reading a pamphlet that said when we get to Heaven all our sins and failures will be shown on a big screen for everyone to see. How embarrassing would that be! If that’s the case, all of our dirty laundry would be aired out to bring shame to us in Heaven. Nothing could be further from the truth.
If Heaven is recording your sins then God is recording your sins, which is contrary to the Bible. Anyone who has received Jesus as their Savior is assured that their sins on earth are not recorded by God.
“If you, Lord, kept a record of sins, who could stand? But with you there is forgiveness, so that we can, with reverence, serve you.” Psalms 130:3-4
Also, “Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.””
Because of Jesus and the power of the cross, the old days of God remembering and punishing our sins are over. Why? Because God already punished our sins in the body of His Son for six hours on the cross until Jesus cried out, “It is finished.” God already remembered our sins when He put them on Jesus who was punished as our substitute allowing us to be forever and completely forgiven. Our sins will never be remembered in God’s eyes.
Today, you can accept the fact that if you are a Christian, God and Heaven are not recording your sins and failures. If you will believe this, then you can serve Him with reverence as the scriptures reveal.
