An Exposition of Psalm 130, Part One

Psalms 130:1-3  (ID: 3244)

It is important to understand how offensive sin is to a holy God, but how do we keep the awareness of our sinful state from sending us into spiritual despondency? Teaching on Psalm 130, Alistair Begg encourages us to follow the Psalmist’s example by crying out to Jesus and asking Him for mercy when we find ourselves in the depths of sin’s despair. It is only by turning away from ourselves and trusting in Christ’s sacrifice on our behalf that we will find the cure for our iniquity.


My Soul Waits for the Lord

A Song of Ascents.

1Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord!
