Blessed is He that is Forgiven
Today I read Psalms 32 which reminds me how many people don't understand the Atonement. David in this Psalm states that the person whose transgression is forgiven is blessed. Too many people think that the fact someone has to repent makes them a horrible person. This is not the case. The fact someone has to repent makes them human. Even the prophets of every dispensation has to repent. Everyone makes mistakes and we all have fallen short of the glory of God as Paul says. However, because of Jesus Christ and the Atonement that He performed, we can all become clean again. Repentance is a gift and should be regarded as such. If we did not have the gift of being able to repent, damnation and eternal torment would be all we have to look forward to. David says blessed are those that receive forgiveness and he is right, but I say blessed is He who made it possible for us to repent! Until tomorrow.
