Repentance (Spring Cleaning #4) (Psalm 32:3-7)Louis Baron , 28/10/2018
Part of the Spring Cleaning series, preached at a Pulpit Series service
Psalm 32. Louis Baron examines this song from King David, and its lessons on repentance. This is not meant to be, as it were, an "outer suburb" of our Christian walk - rather, it is the "city centre". While often see repentance as simply trying harder to be a better person, we must realise that this is a mere by-product of us exchanging various forms of idolatry, for God Himself.

3 For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away
through my groaning all day long.
4 For day and night your hand was heavy upon me;
my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer. Selah
5 I acknowledged my sin to you,
and I did not cover my iniquity;
I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,”
and you forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah
6 Therefore let everyone who is godly
offer prayer to you at a time when you may be found;
surely in the rush of great waters,
they shall not reach him.
7 You are a hiding place for me;
you preserve me from trouble;
you surround me with shouts of deliverance. Selah (ESV)
