Goodbye to Guilt

August 12, 2018

How can you be sure that God will forgive you of your sin? How can you know that if you come to God and confess and come clean that He will accept you and He will forgive you? There are two things that absolutely guarantee He will – the cross of Jesus and the blood of Jesus. Jesus did not come to this earth to die on a cross just to make us better. He died on a cross to rise from the grave and make us forgiven.

Playlist

Psalms are the songs of the Bible. They teach us about the nature and character of God, and how He gives answers throughout the challenges of life. In this teaching series, Pastor Merritt examines a "playlist" of four psalms, each with a specific message for our lives today.

Bible Reference

Have mercy on me, O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy blot out my transgressions.
Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin!
For I know my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me.
Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so that you may be justified in your words and blameless in your judgment.
Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me.
Behold, you delight in truth in the inward being, and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart.
Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones that you have broken rejoice.
Hide your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities.
Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.
Cast me not away from your presence, and take not your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.
Then I will teach transgressors your ways, and sinners will return to you.
Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, O God of my salvation, and my tongue will sing aloud of your righteousness.
O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise.
For you will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it; you will not be pleased with a burnt offering.
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.
