Words of great comfort from Dr. Luther:
If you believe that it is really true that Christ has suffered for you and saved you, then you can say “If Christ has my sin, that means it is no longer mine simply because Christ has it.” He has torn the sin from my heart and from my conscience where I had a register of sins in which the following was written: “You have been an adulterer, a murderer and a thief.” However, as I have the Word: “Christ has taken my sin upon Himself”, you will therefore not find my sins in any register or book neither in heaven nor on earth. They have all been written onto the Son of God; that is the only place I will see them and that means nowhere else.
Luther Brevier, p270
