“Innocent of Great Transgression”
Keep back your servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me! Then I shall be blameless, and innocent of great transgression. Psalm 19:13
TRANSGRESSION: Crossing the line, overstepping, doing wrong, disobedience.
King David was praying for a COMPLETE CLEANSING, in order to LIVE an UPRIGHT and ACCEPTABLE LIFE before God. He prayed that he would be forgiven of his HIDDEN FAULTS, and his presumptuous, (willful) acts of disobedience. He prayed that God would give him STRENGTH to NOT let the sins have DOMINION (control) over him.
Then he would be INNOCENT of GREAT TRANSGRESSIONS. If David, who was a man after God’s Own Heart, SINNED and TRANSGRESSED, against God, felt the NEED to PLEAD for a COMPLETE CLEANSING, so that he might LIVE an UPRIGHT and ACCEPTABLE LIFE before the ALMIGHTY GOD, what would give US the idea that WE could LIVE SINFUL lives, and TRANSGRESS or DISOBEY God and ESCAPE His WRATH? It just won’t happen.
David tells us: “Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven; whose sin is covered.” (Ps. 32:1), FORGIVEN and COVERED, are two words that are COMFORTING to those who are willing to TURN AWAY FROM their SINFULNESS and their TRANSGRESSIONS, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. And the KNOWLEDGE that the act of the FORGIVENESS of their sins, and the fact that those sins are COMPLETELY COVERED with the SHED BLOOD of GOD’S PERFECT LAMB, the LORD JESUS CHRIST, God’s ONE and ONLY Son, who GAVE HIS LIFE that WE might have ETERNAL LIFE in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS, and ESCAPE an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, gives us ASSURANCE of GOD’S UNFAILING LOVE.
To be FORGIVEN and have your sins COVERED, you MUST CONFESS your sins to GOD, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. Then BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. You MUST ACCEPT His Gift of SALVATION and be INNOCENT of GREAT TRANSGRESSIONS. Then you too, will be COMPLETELY CLEANSED from your sins, and will spend your ETERNITY in Heaven. So, do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!
