Psalm 36:I have a message from God in my heart
concerning the sinfulness of the wicked:[b]
There is no fear of God
before their eyes.
2 In their own eyes they flatter themselves
too much to detect or hate their sin.
3 The words of their mouths are wicked and deceitful;
they fail to act wisely or do good.
4 Even on their beds they plot evil;
they commit themselves to a sinful course
and do not reject what is wrong.
In our ever so “sensitive” times a message like that in Psalm 36is not very popular. We Christians have become largely “desensitized” to the ain all around us. Here David engages in a ittle righteous finger-pointing. He sees just as Noah did the ost and fallen nature of humankind. Now you might be the first to say, “As if he were any better.’ The point is that David was not any better, but he was sensitive enough to hear the voice of God reminding him of how far short of God’s own holiness that David himself and all of the rest of humankind had fallen.
No matter how you slice it sin is still sin. Whatever mitigating circumstances or excuses you may be tempted to throw up to the accusations you may feel in your heart if you are sinning, I would have to say, “welcome to the club” (Romans 3:23) The question is what you will do about it. Help is on the way, says the song. Call on the name of Jesus. Ask Him “anything”, even your deepest darkest heart destroying sins can be forgiven, and you can be transformed into His image of righteousness before God.
