Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven . . . (Psalm 32:1)
When David came to his spiritual and moral senses and cried, “Lord, have mercy,” the first thing he said was, “Blot out my transgressions.” He didn’t say, “I have broken my own standard of conduct” or “I made a mistake.” Transgression involves a deliberate rebellion against God; it is crossing the line that God has drawn. David realized that he had to own his transgressions before he could disown them. He used a word that is now missing in our lexicon of Christianity: sin.
