Confession, Forgiveness, and Worship

In Psalm 32, we see David dealing with sin in a way that describes the whole Christian life: at first, he is weighed down by his sin, groaning and roaring as his body and soul are eaten away by guilt and shame, but when he confesses his sin, and receives God’s mercy, he ends the Psalm by exhorting the righteous ones to join him in praising God. David moves from groaning to praise, by means of confession and forgiveness. So if you are groaning under God’s hand because of your sins, here is good news: God is eager to deliver you! Confess your sins, receive the forgiveness He offers through the atoning blood of Christ, and shout for joy, you upright in heart!
