Point 3: No secret has to stay bad.

Three terms used for sin in Psalm 32:
Sin, iniquity, and Transgression

Three terms used for forgiveness in Psalm 32:
Forgiven, Covered, and not counted

Let’s find a place where we can be all alone and free to voice
our confessions of sin to our gracious and merciful Father.
Remember, He already knows and He’s never let us go. For
us to verbalize where we know we’ve sinned is our means
of thinking each transgression through and acknowledging
that we have wandered from the will of God and want to
turn our course back to Him in each way.
Our genuine confessions and true repentance are means of
bringing our sins right to the altar of sacrifice where provision
has been made for us. Here we cry out and acknowledge that
we want every barrier to divine fellowship and joy removed.
Listen, Sister, this is what the cross of Christ was for. Let’s not
be too proud or too ashamed to say how much we require
what He’s already accomplished for us. Christ’s death on the
cross was enough no matter how far we’ve wandered or how
deep a pit we’ve dug for ourselves. If it were not, I’d be a lost
cause, and the last place you’d find me is here in Bible study
with you.
