ALL Your Sins Are Forgiven In Christ (See Why And How)

The Bible did not hold anything back in revealing that the Man in Christ is a forgiven man. That is, the born again man has received the forgiveness of sins not just for some of his sins but for all of it.
(Col 1:12)  Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
(Col 1:13)  Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
(Col 1:14)  In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
(Col 2:13)  And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;
We have the gift of forgiveness of sins now (in the present) because He had already forgiven us all our trespasses (in the past). John The Beloved gave witness to this in his epistle.
(1Jn 2:12)  I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name's sake.
With much clarity, he (John) let’s us know the believers’ sins are already forgiven. While admonishing the brethren to always let go of wrongs done them by others, Paul said the reason they should always do this is because God had already done the same for them.
(Eph 4:32)  And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
(Col 3:13)  Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
So God forgave us all of our sins for the sake of His Son. Not because we deserved it or because we have confessed and promised not to go back to them. His sole reason for doing this the Bible tells us, is because of His Son Jesus.
This total forgiveness of sins was a reality the Old Testament folks looked forward to, having received it as a promise from God and demonstrated Faith in it through their yearly sacrifice of bulls and rams which only covered their sins for a moment (for that year alone).
Because of this inability of the blood of animals in the Old Covenant to completely wipe away sin since it could only take care of the outsides of a man and not his inwards, God through His prophets told them that a day is coming in which He is going to institute a New Covenant for them.
This New Covenant will have the forgiveness of sins as the main crux that it’s beneficiaries will receive.
(Jer 31:31)  Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
(Jer 31:32)  Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:
(Jer 31:33)  But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
(Jer 31:34)  And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
Quoting this passage of the Bible, the writer of Hebrews tells us that Jesus has ushered this New Covenant in by offering up Himself as the sacrifice for sin once and for all.
By this sacrifice, the sins of all men and for all times were totally forgiven by God. This includes those committed from Adam till the end of times.
This is why sins are no longer counted against the Man in Christ as he go through life on daily basis. The death, burial and resurrection of Jesus has nullified wrongs to be recorded against him.
(Heb 8:12)  For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.
(2Co 5:19)  To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
Knowing how much God has forgiven us in Christ, we then extend the same same to our spouse, kids, colleagues and everyone around us, letting the world see in us a God who bears no record of wrongs. A God who truly forgives even before the offender ever asks for it.
I hope this blesses you. Feel free to share and bless someone with it too.
Glory to God!
