Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man against whom the LORD counts no iniquity. —Psalm 32:1-2

And David speaks likewise of the blessedness of the man to whom God credits righteousness apart from works: “Blessed are they whose lawless acts are forgiven, whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord will never count against him.” —Romans 4:6-8

            Do you know Jesus? Have you called on His Name? If the answer is yes then you are truly blessed! Why? Because your sin is forgiven. His blood has taken care of your sin problem. That was an eternal problem. Sin not covered by the blood of Jesus will cause unsaved people, people who do not want anything to do with Jesus, to be cast into Hell forever. But for those who have truly called on Jesus, evidenced by their living for Him, they will be going to Heaven when they die. All this is possible because of Jesus shedding His blood on the cross for us.   Whoever accepts His sacrifice on the cross will be saved from their sin, from Hell and to a relationship with Him and be with Him forever in Heaven when they die.

            King David realized this truth about one thousand years before Jesus came to Earth the first time. He understood that when a person truly believes that God credits righteousness to that believer— “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God” (II Corinthians 5:21). Blessed fellow follower of Jesus rejoice in this! The Lord will never count our sin against us… never because He has forgiven us!   You feel blest? You should because you are! Let us rejoice and praise God by word and deed!

Dear Father this is an astounding truth. It is an astounding work that You have done for us through Jesus. My great desire is to lovingly honor You with my life and may I do so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus.   So be it!
