CityLight Pastor Commentary:

“You were to them God-Who-Forgives, though You took vengeance on their deeds” (Ps 99:8). In Psalm 99, God shows us a very important lesson: He will love us no matter what we do. God hates sin, but He still loves sinners. The psalmist uses the Hebrew name El Nahsah for God, and points out something that is nothing short of life-changing when we fully embrace it: No matter what you’ve done, God wants a restored relationship with you. He sent His Only Son Jesus Christ to hang and die on the Cross so that we could enjoy intimacy with Him for all time. God forgives: it’s not just something He does, it’s Who He Is!!!


Father, thank You that the Cross of Jesus Christ is big enough to cancel all of my sins: past, present and future. When I call on the Name of Your Son, I am forgiven!
