Lord's Day 51

 

 

A. "And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors"; that is, be pleased for the sake of Christ's blood, not to impute to us poor sinners, our transgressions, nor that depravity, which always cleaves to us; (a) even as we feel this evidence of thy grace in us, that it is our firm resolution from the heart to forgive our neighbour. (b)
(a)
Ps.51:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet came unto him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba. Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.
Ps.51:2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
Ps.51:3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.
Ps.51:4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in
clear when thou judgest.
Ps.51:5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
Ps.51:6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.
Ps.51:7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
Ps.143:2 And enter not into judgment with thy servant: for in thy sight shall no man living be justified.
1 John 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
1 John 2:2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
Rom.8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
(b)
Matt.6:14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
Matt.6:15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
