Penitence: I acknowledge my sin to you
Marvin Brubacher // Psalm 32
June 24–25, 2017

Three steps to finding joy after living with unconfessed sin (v. 1-5)

1. I must call sin by name—a radical offense against a holy God (v. 1-2)

2. I must calculate the cost of unconfessed sin—the burden of guilt (v. 3-4)

3. I must confess my sin to God and claim his forgiveness (v. 5)

Three steps to maintaining joy after finding forgiveness from sin (v. 6-11)

1. I must run to God early when being tempted (v. 6-7)

2. I must respond to God’s guidance with humble obedience (v. 8-9)

3. I must reject the way of sorrow and embrace the steadfast love of the Lord (v. 10-11)
