Casting all our sins into oblivion!

(John Angell James, "Forgiveness of Injuries")

"Who is a God like You, removing iniquity and passing
 over rebellion for the remnant of His inheritance? He
 does not hold on to His anger forever, because He
 delights in faithful love. He will again have compassion
 on us; He will vanquish our iniquities. You will cast all
 our sins into the depths of the sea." (Micah 7:18-19)

Wonderful language! This is one of the finest images to
represent the completeness of God's pardoning mercy to
be found in all the Bible. He casts our sins not into a brook
nor a river where they might be found again; no, nor into
the sea near the shore where the tide might wash them up
again--but like a stone cast into the depths of the sea,
where they can never be fished up again, but lie forever
buried and forgotten at the bottom of the ocean! This is
divine forgiveness--casting all our sins into oblivion!
