As today commences the 40 day season of lent leading to the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, I am challenged to consider my own mortality and desperate need for forgiveness from the gunk in my soul.
Reflections from Psalm 51
A Teacher of Wisdom.
Giver of Joy.
And yet, Lord, you do not desire a burnt offering from me. You have taken all my sin upon yourself to be my offering by going to the cross, by your shed blood. The only sacrifice you desire is a broken and repentant heart. (v. 16-17)
O God, please create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit within me. (v. 10)
