“Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me.”

‭‭Psalm‬ ‭51:1-3‬ ‭NIV‬‬

David emphasizes his recognition of the depth of his sin through repetition in these verses, making it clear he is deeply grieved by how he has disappointed God and desires forgiveness. Repentance is not a quickie confession of wrong-doing and assumption of God’s forgiveness. True repentance involves serious self-examination and turning away from error and toward the cross of Christ. Do you feel this same sense of agony over your own sin, with it weighing heavily on your heart? It’s time to take that burden to Him.🚦
