"Pardon for the Greatest Sinners" - Jonathan Edwards - Tuesday, February 14, 2012 4:48 AM

Quote:
PSALM 25:11
For thy name’s sale, O Lord, pardon my iniquity; for it is great.


IT is evident by some passages in this psalm, that when it was penned, it was a time of affliction and danger with David. This appears particularly by the 15th and following verses: “Mine eyes are ever towards the Lord; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net,” etc. His distress makes him think of his sins, and leads him to confess them, and to cry to God for pardon, as is suitable in a time of affliction. See ver. 7. “Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions;” and verse 18. “Look upon mine affliction, and my pain, and forgive all my sins.”

This is a wonderful sermon by Jonathan Edwards that extols the infinite mercy and grace of God toward poor needy sinners. Edwards didn't preach only on hell fire and damnation as some are given to believe. He was a true gospel preacher who preached the "whole counsel of God" to his congregations.
