You know what I have come to appreciate about the subject with driving titled when your sin is totally forgiven. What I've come to appreciate about it is that it applies to every one of us today.

I will confess to you that many times when I stand up there and I speak and I say now, Lord, you told me to speak on a certain subject and I know doesn't apply to everybody and Lord, I want you to make the right application and God always does that, but today folks. I'm gonna waive that because I love when it comes down to the matter of sin and forgiveness, everybody's include Bible tells us all about Simpson right Bible says there is none righteous, not one, but one person's acquire. I know this message is for you.

TRY notes for you.

I notes for every single man, woman born go.

The Bible says all about Simpson and come short of the glory of God Bible also tells us that when God forgives us, he takes obscenity costed from far as the east is from the West and he remembers it no more.

Well evidently we don't quite get it.

We seem to struggle with the matter of forgiveness when your sin is totally forgiven. I guess what we going to do today.

I'm going to give to you 10 points by calling my checklist for total forgiveness. I meant to give you 10 bullets and I made to guarantee you something from God's word. If you're able to check off these standpoints.

My friends according to God's word. You're not just forgiven you totally forgiven.

It's gone it's over now. You will school bear the consequences of your sin but you have been forgiven completely, totally, entirely, and utterly because that's what God has done for us in and through the Lord Jesus Christ.

It's the most incredible gift that God could ever give to people like you and me because all of us of sin.

We all fallen short of the glory of God. I want you to just imagine for a moment that I'm about to bake a cake not a good idea promise you I'm not gonna do that but if I was able to bake a cake and I was to call this cake forgiveness. I'm baking a cake that is called forgiveness. What would be the ingredients necessary to put into the baking of that cake to make it the cake that it's intended to be and the most Cake that perhaps you ever eat what would those ingredients be I'm going to give you 10 points today you might want to write them down in the back. Your Bible is gonna need them, but write these things down. So where are we going to find this from how about in the bulletin somewhere.

Maybe we could find the on Sunday. What about one of the self-help.

I know what guys forget just watch Dr. Fu and if that fails June in Oprah she'll tell you somebody somewhere is going to have the Onset to the spokes will I'm going to submit to you we going to go right to the only source Psalm 51.

Open your Bibles with me this morning. Why Psalm 51 that's known as the Psalm of David. I want to remind you something about David. David was guilty of three ticketless and we know what they were. My morning was guilty of adultery, number two, he was guilty of lying.

Number three he was guilty of murder, particularly heinous crimes against society, but sin in the eyes of God. I don't believe that God categorizes sin does.

Because sin is sin in the eyes of God say this sentence worse than that, but society must categorize sin if you want to know how severe a sin is or a crime is just match the punishment crime and punishment should match together from a societal cultural perspective right.

That's how we grade sin. God doesn't grade sin. God juxtaposes what we do in relation to the righteousness of God. And David was guilty of adultery, of lying and of murder. Listen to what he said in Psalm 51, have mercy on me. Oh God, according to your unfailing love, according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions wash away all my iniquity and cleans me from my sin, for I know that my transgressions, my sin is always before me against you. You only have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight so that you are proved right when you speak and justified when you judge surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me surely what you desire is truth in the inner parts you oh God, teach me wisdom in my inmost place. Man looks on the outward appearance, God looks on the heart. Watch the spokes. Verse seven claims me with his trip and I will be clean wash me and I will be whiter than snow. Let me hear joy and gladness. Let the bones you have crashed.

Rejoice hide your face from my sins and block out my iniquity creating me a pure heart and renew a standard far spirit within me.

Do not cost me away from your presence, or take your Holy Spirit from me. While your Holy Spirit because this was a Christian man would sinned against God, risk all to me the joy of your salvation because when Christians sin against God. They lose they enjoyed, not their salvation and Grand Prix a willing spirit to sustain me and I will teach transgressors your ways, and sinners will turn back to you. Save me from blood guilt God the God who saves me and my tongue will sing of your righteousness, overload, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise. You do not delight in sacrifice. Otherwise, I bring it to trying get forgiveness.

You do not take pleasure in burnt offerings rituals from me. The sacrifices that you require full forgiveness already broken spirit broken and contrite heart of God. These are the things you will not despise. So, in your good pleasure. You make Israel prosper build up the walls of Jerusalem that are being broken down.

Then they will be righteous sacrifices whole burnt offerings to delight you will be offered to your altar when you will send is totally forgiven checklist number one. Write it down. I heartfelt cry will be heard now.

What's the spokes listen very carefully to what I'm about to write this down number one I heartfelt cry will be heard.

Some of you going to say to me, pasta how do I know that I'm totally forgiven.

There it is. Has God heard a heart felt pride coming from your heart. That's what were verse one is all about, have mercy upon me.

Oh God, in the United States of America. We've cultivated the impression that when we pray for forgiveness, all it is is a ritualistic and all I've done.

It happened you well.

Lord, thank you for the Diane bless us and watch over us and protect us and thank you for my house and forgive me for Mazen on, by the way God you forgive me Bible says that doesn't work.

You see friends knowing Jesus Christ is not about a ritual it's about a relationship we coming to a personal relationship with him. And when we coming to a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.

I heartfelt cry comes from our heart. Now you going to say pasta defined icon. Some people say will you know that a person is expressing a heartfelt cry because they break down and they bring tears. I think that's what the Bible is talking about folks. Some people say to me unless you weep unless you knew this unless you knew that. I don't believe that that's got anything to do with it. I believe that what God is talking about is that a man or a woman, a boy or girl comes into the presence of God with the crop on their hearts. Oh God, I know that I've sinned against you, and unless I am totally given by you.

I am due so I guess the first ingredient heartfelt cry. You got on so that before the Lord, not about being a member of the church about saying a prayer about whispering something will happen to do this, as you seem to walk along in the daily rituals of lack a heartfelt cry will be heard. Number two, a merciful God will be sold on love this one. The second part of verse one because David hearing his agony.

He's cried out. He said oh God, and he immediately costs himself upon the mercy of God. And it's interesting to note here that in verse one. He talks about the long suffering. This, of God's love and he says he says I want to throw myself upon your flailing love that we talk about the attributes of God. My dear friends the heart and the holiness and the character of God, you cannot talk about God and his love without talking about his covenant of love.

God's coming to love means that God hasn't changed his mind. David placed himself upon the scene gone because this belongs to think well.

Forgiveness is God.

It's God's to give because he's Massey because of his grace because of his unfailing love and David looks into the face of God and he says oh God, I'm trying to hear because you are merciful God of folks. This is a deep theological issue that we are dealing with in the heart. Forgiveness in the knowing that we are 20 people given that we're costing ourselves upon him. It is not about him. Please forgive the reps will be back with the rest of today's message when your sin is totally forgiven with Dr. Don Wilton right now. When we think about that last phrase of docs it's not about us, it's about him shifting our perspective off of us and onto Jesus sometimes is the key linchpin for changing every way we perceive our situation and circumstance.

I blame this is pretty evident during verse seven and done what is right about it is just how we blame goes on in America today. Somebody does something so we got counseling psychologist whose job it is to dig back somewhere back there in the dark Angels to find out with the dog with the person because of the dog with the person the dogs to blame. I thought we knew we gone so accustomed that. Let's just find out so we can blame someone you met somebody that anytime anything happens, they quickly looking for someone else to blame when your sin is totally forgiven.

I personal blame will be acknowledged. You the person.

David came down to the point could eat all you will Lord Bathsheba man. She was so beautiful.

Lord not to entre, I had a moment of weakness. Lord, I will look this was that I justified that wanted knew that he try to rationalize and you and I know that the definition of to rationalize is to tell a rational life we spend our entire lives trying to tell one another rationalize God's is your look at somebody else. When your sin is totally forgiven.

A personal blame will be acknowledged.

Number four birth defect will be noted right there in verse five David takes us on a journey back to the heart of the sinful man, which is exceedingly wicked.

He reminds us that we are born in sin. Why does he remind us that we are born in sin because Paul confirmed this when he said in Adam all people die. I was conceived in sin.

The psalmist is telling us yeah because when he reminds us about this birth defect that has to do with our separation from God.

He's reminding us that our sin is not the fault of God in America today.

Folks, we spend half our time trying to blame God for everything God did. God didn't do it. We did it. I'm the one number five contract attitude will be seen. Verse seven claims me with hyssop, and I will be clean wash me and I will be whiter than snow.

David is saying listen to the crime is hearty so I know what you mean to me because I have seen it defect, but I have a client that because of my sin.

Leprosy that I'm going to be a rather isolated.

Many wrapped around my dad will you hear that that is what he's talking about when your sin is totally forgiven. Number six, a pure heart will be desired.

Love this 10 David puts it like this. He says create in me a pure heart of God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Now, folks. What happens when you send what does Satan do to people like you and me, I meant to give you two things that sin does. First of all, it pollutes your heart.

It pollutes your heart sing pollutes your heart.

What it does, it restricts the blood flow. You walk around with a heavy heart.

Number two it takes away your strength for the journey to give you an example. I apologize to all those who are not married. If you had a disagreement with your spouse. I've never had a disagreement with my spouse I'm talking about all of you, but if you had a disagreement with your spouse and you leave hello and you fallen out of fellowship, you had an argument there's been hardship. Maybe this is your son maybe at your daughter.

Maybe it's your best friend and you walk out you go back to business.

How do you go back to business when you're out of fellowship with those that you love. Number one, you've got a polluted heart guarantee if you love somebody and you're out of ownership within you got a polluted, it doesn't matter what you doing where you doing how you doing and it doesn't matter what anybody else thinks you can slide out, but inside your heart is polluted.

Number two, you lose your strength just don't seem to be able to carry yourself the way you need carrier so there are two casualties of certain David speaking metaphorically speaking spiritually in application to rezone heart. He said listen, I want a pure heart and then you go and you turn your wife and you say honey. Please forgive me. You turn your son. Please forgive me.

Your son turns to that you turn your friend. You gotta reconcile. You know that feeling when you make up tell you what. All of a sudden your heart is line. All of a sudden a renewed strength comes into your bones. All of a sudden you put get up and go again something happens.

There's nothing better than making up is there a being reconciled together a pure heart, Lord, give me a pure heart.

Renew my strength number seven iron restoration will be crave.

You see friends as soon as a pure heart is put in process when I begin to beg God to do that.

I begged him to restore me verse 12 of the same song restore to me the joy of your salvation. There's a simple reason that restoration will be crave and that is that sin always breaks fellowship guaranteed folks I've seen people who go to church all of a sudden stopped coming to church because of sin. I've seen marriages that are just as happy as anything all of a sudden something just breaks her fellowship breaks you breaks fellowship with God in heaven.

You breaks fellowship with your fellow man, and so the cry of my heart. The ingredient of this wonderful cake called forgiveness must be that a restoration I got to put a little restoration in the Lord because I want to come back. I want to be restored. Number eight I promise will be made. I promise will be my eye has an interesting thing starting in verse 13 David says and there's a little word you he sees there will I when you're certain is totally forgiven, they must create a promise in that package deal, folks, and by the way when it came to David. There were four promises normal on the promise to teach the promise to teach you cite pasta, does that mean I have to stand up with the chalkboard and an overhead or whatever it is and I need know he's not talking about that what he's talking about here is because God is forgiving me and pledging myself to hand on the baton of God's righteousness others. That's what it means to teach it means you're willing to hand on to somebody else that which you know to be true. Number two second promise was a willingness to witness witness. He said all teach transgressors your ways incentives will come back to you promise a willingness to say I willingness to say that's what he says here in this text.

He says my tongue will sing of your righteousness, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your price. There were mainly singing at the football game, but all across America today, those same men coming to churches and all of a sudden you couldn't get them to open your mouth to try and never seen a man who sings a lot when he's out there, but as soon as he comes in the house of God like he's recovering from hookworm treatment folks, the Bible says when I'm totally forgiven.

Therefore, things that I'm in a new I'm going to teach, to witness I'm going to sing praises to him and I'm gonna worship I get delivered from the rituals unto the relationship. If I do not teach if I'm not parsing on the baton if I'm not willing to witness.

If I am not singing praises to him even quietly, if I'm not worshiping the Lord, I believe I've ever been timely to God's. These are tough things, whether people can talk about their football teams with such great gusto. I want to tell you something I'm willing to stand up and talk about Jesus Christ and if you believe that God tries this morning that is.

Thank you. Please read the promise will be my number nine brokenness will be evident.

Bible tells us right there in verse 17 that the sacrifices of God are a broken spirit of broken and a contrite heart. The ninth ingredient the ninth checklist for total forgiveness is a brokenness you say to me pasta.

What is that me I don't know how does it look I don't know where all my differently. I reject people who come to me and say well you should be in a crumple in a heap weeping Araiza said well you should be doing this you should be doing that.

That's what modern day Pharisees do they assign things that might look like.

It's all legalism. Folks he's talking about the heart. I believe that when a man or a woman or a boy being totally forgiven the brokenness of their heart will be evident for everybody to see. You see it, you feel a chill been touched by you will be impacted by it, which is the 10th point and impact and impact will be seen and impact will be made and impact will be evident and impact will be felt. Look at David. What does he tell us they right there in the text he says in verse 18. As a result of this in your good pleasure because I your leader have been totally forgiven. Would you impact my nation, my people Zion, Israel wisely and impact because the wolves are broken down.

Did you see that in adverse what happens when you're totally forgiven the wolves a reboot gentleman reconstruction takes place rejuvenation is a friction counter begins to blow again. Sun begins to rise impact will be filled family feeling. Note church will feeling they'll note the community will feel they will know nation will feel it. Note because when we told the Lord Jesus Christ.

Powerful message for Dr. Wilton today when we understand how much we been forgiven, changes the way we love and forgive others pray that you would be blessed by the message of her deductible today. The teaching, but right now he has something that it's not teaching it's a question for you. Open your heart to these next two second, are you ready to give you half life to the Lord Jesus Christ. Why did you pray this prayer with me right.

Dear God, I know that I miss and I know that Jesus died for me cross today. I repainted my sin and by faith I received Jesus name.
