The glory of salvation is that whoever believes in the Lord Jesus is completely pardoned. It is not some of his sin that is put away, but all of it. I rejoice to look upon it as dear Kent does when he sings,
Here’s pardon for transgressions past, It matters not how black their cast;
And, O my soul, with wonder view, For sins to come here’s pardon too.
We are plunged into the fountain of redeeming
blood and cleansed from every fear of ever being found guilty before
the living God. We are accepted in the Beloved through the
righteousness of Jesus Christ, justified once for all and forever before
the Father’s face! Christ said, ‘It is finished,’ and finished it is.
And Oh, what a bliss is this — one of the things that may well stagger
those who have never heard it before. But let them not reject it
because it staggers them but rather let them say, ‘This wonderful system
which saves and saves completely, in an instant, simply by looking out
of self to Christ, is a system worthy of divine wisdom, for it magnifies
the grace of God and meets man’s deepest necessities.’”
C. H. Spurgeon, The Treasury of the New Testament (Grand Rapids, 1950), I:451-452.
All I can ask is Has this truth that Christians are "justified once for
all and forever before the Fathers face" really staggered you? If this
truth really sinks into your life all you can do is worship God and be
overwhelmingly grateful and joyfully live your life to please the God
who saved you by grace alone. If this is not how you are living you
really don't grasp what Christ did for you and you are in some way still
trying to save yourself which results in a joyless miserable life.
