Blessed Is He

Written by: John Sernaque

Call to Worship


Psalms 32: 1,2

32:1 Blessed [is he whose] transgression [is] forgiven, [whose] sin [is] covered.

32:2 Blessed [is] the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit [there is] no guile.


David Was Reconverted—David was pardoned of his transgression because he humbled his heart before God in repentance and contrition of soul and believed that God’s promise to forgive would be fulfilled. He confessed his sin, repented, and was reconverted. In the rapture of the assurance of forgiveness, he exclaimed, “Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit, there is no guile.” The blessing comes because of pardon; pardon comes through faith that the sin, confessed and repented of, is borne by the great Sin-bearer. Thus, from Christ cometh all our blessings. His death is an atoning sacrifice for our sins. He is the great Medium through whom we receive the mercy and favor of God. He, then, is indeed the Originator, the Author, as well as the Finisher, of our faith (Manuscript 21, 1891). {3BC 1146.3}


Sin is what separates us from God. David sinned; we have all sinned. But if we humble ourselves, confess and repent of our sins, like David, we will be reconverted. Jesus will bear our sins on Himself, so all our blessings come from Christ. He is our great intercessor who presents us faultless before God. So, by faith, we can be sure that if we come to God in true repentance that His promise to forgive us will be fulfilled. He is indeed the Originator, the Author, as well as the Finisher, of our faith.


Our Father, God Almighty

We thank You once again for giving us the honor, privilege, and opportunity of being able to come to the foot of Your throne in thanksgiving and in prayer. We come with humble hearts, in repentance and contrition of soul, that You may forgive us of our sins and that You may cleanse us from all unrighteousness. As David was reconverted, likewise, may we be pardoned of our sins and be reconverted. May we receive Your mercy and favor. Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven; whose sin is covered. We thank You for this promise. We pray that You bless our worship, that it may be well pleasing in Your sight. Bless us with Your message from on High. We thank You for giving us the victory over sin and for hearing and answering our prayers. It’s in the name of Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.
