I acknowledged my sin to you, and my iniquity I have not hidden. I said, I will confess my transgressions to the LORD: And you forgave the iniquity of my sin.
Psalm 32:5

“All things considered, I am no worse than others. I have not wronged anyone, and God is gracious. He will surely make allowances for my slight faults and consider my efforts to lead an upright life.” This is the attitude of many people. We can well believe that they are no worse than others. The question is: who are these “others”? Is the comparison with them a standard that will hold good with God? The time will come when each of us must “give account of himself to God” (Romans 14:12). The life of others is then irrelevant. So it would be advisable to heed God’s verdict, since He is the supreme Judge. His Word tells us that “all have sinned” (Romans 3:23) and that God cannot overlook sin. His holiness demands that He should pronounce His judgment even on what we term slight.

At the same time, however, He is the God who loves us and has given us the Saviour: His beloved Son. Jesus Christ underwent God’s punishment in the place of sinners voluntarily when He died on the cross. There sin was judged, when Jesus died, cancelling the guilt of all who put their trust fully in Him and His atoning work.

We should never think that God takes our sins lightly, but He does offer us the means of full forgiveness, and that free of charge through faith in Jesus Christ.

Today’s reading: Joshua 8:1-13 · 1 Corinthians 6:12-20
