"As for our transgressions, you will provide atonement for them". Psalm 65:3
Most people don't have much trouble accepting the fact that everyone does wrong in their lives. Most people know that Christians believe that Jesus Christ will forgive us for our sins if we ask Him. Even King David who lived 3,000 years ago says God "will provide atonement for them". Jesus is the Atonement or Redeemer. Much of the Old Testament is about this Redeemer, Messiah or the One who will come and will atone. In the oldest book of the Bible, Job says it so clearly, crying out to his so-called comforters almost in frustration because they do not seem to understand. He says, "I KNOW that my Redeemer lives and He shall stand at last on the earth". Job 19:25
Just before this, Job had cried out in frustration: "Oh that my words were written! Oh that they were inscribed in a book!" Well now they are, and that book is the Bible. Job couldn't have said it any more clearly and neither could David. Our Redeemer lives and forgives! What a blessing that is for we who are overcome by our guilt.
