Against you, and you alone, have I sinned; I have done what is evil in your sight.
Psalms 51:4 (NLT)
There is a difference between being sorry for my sins and repenting. Repenting is about God. Being sorry is about me. It is my pride that causes remorse. What will people think? What will happen to me? Will I be rejected, abandoned, forsaken because of what I did? This leads to embarrassment, humiliation and fear. But David felt something else. He felt deep Holy remorse. He saw the true nature of his behavior. It was a sin against God. That insight led him to repentance. What freedom comes when I see my behavior as an offense against God. Why? Because, He is the one who loves me. He is the one who has paid for all my sins. He is the one who has been offended and the one who still loves me unconditionally. Today, when you think of your sins, look into His face. See Him. See His broken heart and then see the cross. That same heart that was broken is full of love and forgiveness for you. His love leads to true repentance.
Father, help me to see the true nature of my sin. It is against You that have I sinned. Thank You for Your love and complete forgiveness. Help me to live my life for You.
