One of the more touching scenes in the Chronicles of Narnia the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe comes near the end after Edmund has fallen under the spell of evil. He has become obsessed with Turkish Delight to the point where he betrays his own brother and sisters.

Once Aslan has forgiven him – he brings Edmund to his siblings and says: There is no more need to talk to Edmund about the past.

Perhaps the most amazing thing of all about God’s forgiving grace – is that once he has cleansed and pardoned us from our sins – there is no more need to talk about the past. In Christ it has been completely dealt with and is now as far from us as East is from West. Infinitely removed.

Now that’s a reason to celebrate!
