Psalms 103:12 (NLT) He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west.
East is so far from the west that they can’t see what the other side has done. We are so far from sin that we no longer react to
it. We can’t see it’s effects from afar. Our ties have been separated. Our nature doesn’t respond to it. It might as well not exist since we can’t see it or respond to it from where we are.
East and west are on the same line. East will never touch west and vice versa. In math class, we were taught that a line goes infinitely in both directions. Its the same with sin and righteousness. The distance between them is never shortened: it’s infinite. Grace is infinite: the more you learn, the more distance there seems to be between sin and righteousness.
