With the Psalmist in Psalm 130, we have been smashed into the dust by our sin, and our only hope is that somehow our cries will reach heaven anyway. If access to God depends on being good enough, then our situation is hopeless, but between heaven and hell stands the fearful reality of forgiveness. God’s forgiveness is more powerful than our failings, and so even our sin cannot prevent Him from hearing us. So as we come to worship, we eagerly wait for Lord along with the Psalmist, reassuring our hearts of God’s steadfast love, and looking hopefully toward the plentiful redemption that He offers in Jesus Christ.
