Is God counting our sins? Are we counting our blessings?
Look at Jesus. Look at him, crucified for you. Look at him – and you’ll know the answer to the first question. God’s not counting our sins. All our sins have been laid on Jesus (Isaiah 53:6) – “My sins are gone, gone, gone, far away … The blood has washed them away.”
What about the second question? Can we ever count all the blessings we have received from the Lord? There are always more blessings than we can count. Think about the blessings we receive day-by-day – and when you can’t keep track of them all, remember this: “God has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in Christ” (Ephesians 1:3): “Count your blessings, name them one-by-one, and it will surprise you what the Lord has done.”
