Pride in Workmanship

A wealthy European bought a Rolls Royce. One day he hit a deep pothole in the vehicle, and the rear axle broke. He shipped the Rolls back to the plant in England. He was surprised by how quickly the car was repaired, but was happy to have his Rolls back. He waited for months, but no bill for the repair came, though his warranty had expired. Finally, he wrote and asked the company about it. Their reply: "We have thoroughly searched our files and find no record of a Rolls-Royce axle ever breaking." Pride in their workmanship had erased any record of one of their axles ever having a flaw. When God searches Heaven's books for the record of your flaws, He likewise finds nothing in the files. To find something would be to suggest that the blood of His Son was not sufficient to cleanse you. There's no record of your sin in Heaven if you are a believer in Jesus Christ. You are "holy in his sight" (Colossians 1:22).  Hebrews 8:12: For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.
