Psalm 32:5

Psalm 32:5

This is part 3 of a Psalm 32 series.

2013-06-25 14.48.21

5 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

Selah.

This, right here, is the beauty of having a personal relationship with God.  This is what He does for us.  He does what we cannot do.  We cannot take our own sin away and provide forgiveness for ourselves to bring us back into a right relationship with God.  Only God can do that.

He chose to do that through His Son.  Jesus lived a perfect life and died for our sins.  You see, it was only Jesus who could take our sin away.  It was only Him because He was perfect.  He took all of our sin (through dying and rising again) and He gave us His righteousness.  Because of that, we now confess and he forgives.  It’s that simple.

1 John 1:9 says it just right: “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Confess and receive God’s forgiveness today.
