Psalms 32:1-2

 
Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man to whom the LORD does not impute iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no deceit.
Psalms 32:1-2

Sometimes it's healthy and helpful to not only remember that we are saved but to contemplate what we’ve been saved from. Here David describes three aspects of our sinful nature. "Transgression" (pasha)– a going away, a departure, or a rebellion. "Sin" (chattath) – coming short, or falling short of the mark, an arrow that not only misses the target but falls short of it. "Iniquity" (haw) – corrupt, twisted, or crooked.

When we surrender to Christ, God blesses us by "forgiving" – literally it means to have our sins "lifted off." By "covering" – atoned for by the blood of the lamb in the Old Testament and by Jesus' precious blood in the New Testament. And He "does not impute" – does not count, will not keep in a ledger or record. It's wiped clean. And if we are honest with God and ourselves, we can walk in the blessed assurance of our salvation.

Good reminder,

Pastor Gerard
