A Thought For Your Christian Journey:

 

Forgiveness Full and Free

Psalms 32:1-2 1 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. 2 Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile.

Oh, the guilt of sin and our sinfulness.  Just when we feel we are drawing near to our Lord Jesus Christ, our accuser, the devil, begins to remind us of our transgressions of old.  Who among us does not have such a record of iniquity that can be rehearsed time and time again?  Then when trials, testing, and temptation come our way, when the hot coals of life’s circumstances hurdle our path, those failures of old seem to be ready on our adversary’s lips.  He shouts them to us anew, reminding us that we are unworthy of our Heavenly Father’s mercy and omnipotent (all powerful) help.

 

It is at these times that we need to be reminded by the Psalmist of this thirty-second Psalm that our Lord graciously forgives.  We must be renewed in the immutable (unchanging), eternal reality of the forgiveness of our God.  Through His son, Jesus Christ, the penalty for our sins has been fully paid, and our sins can be, and have been taken wholly away, if we have but confessed them and sought such forgiveness.  We are reminded in the New Testament:

 

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9)

Hence, our adversary may cry out our sins toward us, but let that accounting fall on deaf ears.  For our advocate, the Lord Jesus Christ, has already paid the price for us, and we stand in His presence and in the presence of our Heavenly Father as white and clean as the driven snow.  Forgiveness full and free is already ours.  So lets us be gladly reminded by the Psalmist again:

 

Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the LORD, mercy shall compass him about. 11 Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart. (Psalms 32:10-11)

Praise our glorious Lord and Savior.
