Blessed is He

 1Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
 2Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile. 

Blessed is He

Psalm 32, a Psalm of David, begins with a summary of the entire Psalm.

Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.

Forgiveness of sins--how can it be that it is possible for man to receive forgiveness for his sins before a righteous and holy God who cannot even look upon sin? 

From conception, we are cursed with the weight of sin which causes a total separation from God, our Creator. Night and day we struggle in a world consumed by wickedness and idolatry. Born to hate God, there seems to be no hope. 

Yet, there is hope; there is forgiveness of sin. God has provided a way for our sin to be covered.
Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile.

Even though Christ had not yet come, the Psalmist already understood that God would provide a way for sinful man to come to Him. That way was accomplished through the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, God's own perfect, sinless Son. 

Apart from Christ, there is no hope! In Christ, all of the blessings of fellowship with God are provided, and man can experience true freedom from the guilt of his sin.

That is truly a love we cannot comprehend; God could have destroyed all of mankind, and created a new race of people, but, instead, He chose to provide a way of escape from the sin which eternally condemns our souls. Through the death and resurrection of Christ, the penalty for sin has been paid, and our hope of spending eternity in the presence of God has been fulfilled.

Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.

Go to Christ, the Savior. Plead your sin and unworthiness before Him, and accept His payment of sin made on your behalf. As a Christian, you, too, will be included in those blessed by God. How amazing is that?

Blessed is he!

God Bless You,
