God is not punishing you
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace
Some Christians believe that although you have forgiveness of sins, you are not free from the penalties of your sins. In other words, you can still expect punishment from God. God is not punishing you
You need to know that God, who is the only one who can fully appreciate the full value of His Son’s blood and who is completely satisfied by His Son’s sacrifice, has peace in His heart concerning your sins! He is not against you even when you fail. Neither is He out to punish you when you sin. He still loves you, is for you and wants to help you overcome that sin.
The Old Testament tells us, the blood of bulls and goats could only “cover” sins and not take them away. But the blood of Jesus is not like the blood of animals! For one sacrifice, the eternal blood of the Son of God has forever removed your sins and cleansed you of all unrighteousness! In fact, God is so satisfied with His Son’s perfect work that, “Your sins and lawless deeds I will by no means remember!” (Hebrews 10:17) And if God does not remember them, why would He punish you for them?
Because Jesus’ work is complete, all your sins have been completely forgiven. And complete forgiveness means that the penalties for your sins can no longer fall on you because they had already fallen on Jesus at the cross. (Isaiah 53:5)
Don’t think for one moment that God is punishing you for some sin just because something bad happened to you.
Remember if God is for you nothing can be against you. God is not punishing you
I really want to encourage you to be diligent with your Bible study time, because God has so much more for us than we can get from just going to church once or twice a week and hearing someone else talk about the Word. When you spend time with God, your life will change in amazing ways, because God is a Redeemer. There’s nothing that’s too hard for Him, and He can make you whole, spirit, soul and body!
