God Blots

“Be gracious to me, O God, according to Your lovingkindness;

According to the greatness of Your compassion, blot out my transgressions.”
Psalm 51:1

I love this sincere prayer of confession and repentance of David the King.  He knows that he cannot earn forgiveness; he knows that he doesn’t deserve grace or compassion.  He throws himself on the character of the Forgiver and Grace-giving One.  It is because of God’s lovingkindness and compassion that we can ask God to “blot out our transgressions.”  There are not enough good deeds that can be done to earn God’s favor.  There are not enough sacrifices that we can make to cover over our sins, BUT God already provided the only adequate sacrifice!  It is His blood that blots out our transgressions!  It is God’s desire to blot and blot and blot.  You just have to show up and say you are sorry!
