True Church Conference 2009 – Jeff Noblit – The Glory of God in Repentance

Jeff Noblit – Sunday AM – The Glory of God in Repentance

Psalms 130
1 Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord!
2 O Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my pleas for mercy!
3 If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand?
4 But with you there is forgiveness, that you may be feared.
5 I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope;
6 my soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for the morning.
7 O Israel, hope in the Lord! For with the Lord there is steadfast love, and with him is plentiful redemption.
8 And he will redeem Israel from all his iniquities
. ESV

Martin Luther called this the Pauline Psalm.

I. Turning to God in Despair and Confession v 1 – 3

1 Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord!
2 O Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my pleas for mercy!
3 If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand?

Vance Havner, “Shipwrecked on God, stranded on omnipotence.”

II. Trusting in God for Forgiveness & Hope v 4 – 5

4 But with you there is forgiveness, that you may be feared.
5 I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope;

He that is most offended by sin is also most forgiving.

III. Treasuring God as Our Highest Good v 6

6 my soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for the morning.

IV. Telling Others they must Turn, Trust, and Treasure Our God v 7 – 8

7 O Israel, hope in the Lord! For with the Lord there is steadfast love, and with him is plentiful redemption.
8 And he will redeem Israel from all his iniquities.

1 Peter 1:12 It was revealed to them that they were serving not themselves but you, in the things that have now been announced to you through those who preached the good news to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven, things into which angels long to look. ESV
