The Past Tense of God’s Forgiveness  

  The Past Tense of God’s Forgiveness                    
“God has removed our sins as far as the east is from the west”(Psalm 103:12).”
He remembers our sins no more (Hebrews 8:12), 10:17). This is why throughout the New Testament, we see our forgiveness expressed in the past tense:
“Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you”(Ephesians 4:32).
“When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive together in Him, having forgiven us all our transgressions” (Colssians 2:13).
“Bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone;  just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you”  Colossians 3:13).  
“I am writing to you, little children, because your sins have been forgiven for His name’s sake” (I John 2:12).
