My sacrifice, O God is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise. Psalm 51:17
If we confess our sins He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9
King David had deliberately sinned against God, with Bathsheba. And when the Prophet Nathan came to him and told David that God was NOT pleased. David came under conviction, and penned the content of the deep REPENTANT feelings of his heart. He confesses his sins to God, and knows that a SACRIFICE MUST be given, but he also knew that God did not want a burnt offering. God expected something with MORE meaning and something that would cause David to FEEL the impact of his sin, and God’s FORGIVENESS.
So David offers, as his SACRIFICES to the Almighty God, a BROKEN spirit; a BROKEN and CONTRITE HEART. David KNEW this is what would bring God’s FORGIVENESS and a RIGHT RELATIONSHIP with Him.
This is the SACRIFICES that we need to bring before God for the SALVATION of our soul. Jesus Christ paid the price, and was the ULTIMATE SACRIFICE, when He died in OUR place on an old rugged cross. He spilled His OWN BLOOD, in order for mankind to come to God with a BROKEN spirit; a BROKEN and CONTRITE or DEEP SORROWFUL HEART. CONFESSING your SINS to Him and ASKING for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU. God is FAITHFUL and JUST, and will FORGIVE your sins and PURIFY YOU from ALL unrighteousness. And you will then become His Child and will have the Hope of Heaven.
So won’t you come to Him NOW with a BROKEN spirit, and a BROKEN and CONTRITE HEART? CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus Christ died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you. Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and ESCAPE an ETERNITY in Hell and GAIN an ETERNITY in Heaven. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
