When Sins Are Forgiven.

Key Verse

“I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid.   I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin.   Selah’’ (Psalm 32:5).

Text — Psalms 32:1-5


The nations of the world punish persons who commit offenses, resulting in imprisonment and sometimes in the death penalty to stop them from posing further danger to human lives. Have you ever felt guilty and condemned by your conscience for a wrong deed? While you were waiting for reactions from the offended person your heart was troubled and tormented by fear. So will every sinner be troubled at God’s final judgment.

God provides pardon through Christ for every penitent heart to escape eternal punishment in the lake of fire (Revelation 21:8). In our text today, the Psalmist was excited as a benefactor of the pardon for sin because he acknowledged and repented of his sins. He describes the peace, joy, and freedom from the condemnation of the man who receives forgiveness.

A sinner gets relief from the fear of damnation when he confesses his iniquity to God. Your sins will also be forgiven if you sincerely confess and forsake them. There is joy in heaven for every sinner that turns to God in penitence.


There is joy in heaven
