"How blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered! How blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit!" Psalms 32:1-2
Verse 5 goes on to say, "I acknowledged my sin to You, and my iniquity I did not hide; I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the Lord"; And You forgave the guilt of my sin."
Humans are sinful. We were born that way. All of us. We cannot do enough good to overcome our sinful nature. We cannot. Forgiveness only comes from God through true repentance. True repentance is to acknowledge that our ways are insufficient and that we cannot and should not be the masters of our own lives. To repent is to turn away from our sins and to submit our lives to God--allowing Him to truly direct our lives. This can only happen through Christ. He shed innocent blood as atonement for our sins, offering a sacrifice that could be applied to us if we would only repent, accept this free gift, and become one who follows Him. It really is a blessing to be forgiven.
We've all wronged others and certainly, we have wronged the Lord, fallen short of His expectations, and deviated from His ways. Sin is a heavy load to bear. Forgiveness is a beautiful thing. It feels liberating to be forgiven. I am very grateful when others forgive me and especially thankful for the Lord's redemption and forgiveness. As we consider the power of His death on a cross and the empty tomb, let us rejoice in His forgiveness offered and choose anew to follow Christ in all of our ways.
