Of all the things to remember most, we must remember that a price was paid for our forgiveness. And it was paid out of love. David was especially thankful for God’s promise to forgive his sins. He understood what a wonderful blessing it is to be cleansed and forgiven. God loves you so much that He does not want to be separated from you. Sin separates man from God.
John 3:16-17 NKJV
For God so love the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”
God is a holy God and sin breaks off our fellowship with Him. It is because God wants to cleanse you and forgive you of your sin that He sent Jesus to die on the cross. God required that blood be shed to pay for sin.
Hebrews 9:22 NKJV
“And according to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission.”
Only the precious blood of Jesus can cleanse us from our sin and unrighteousness, making it possible for us to have fellowship with our holy God. Jesus shed His blood to pay for the sins of everyone. It is up to each of us to either accept the gift of salvation and forgiveness or to reject it.
1 John 1:7
“But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.”
Thank-you for Your promise to forgive my sins. It truly is a wonderful blessing to be cleansed and forgiven. Thank-you so much for Your love toward me. A love so great that You gave Your own Son, Jesus Christ, as a sacrifice for my sins. By the power of the Holy Spirit convict me of all sin so that my relationship with You is not hindered in any way. Cleanse me and forgive me of my sins and unrighteousness.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
