6The LORD works vindicationPsalm 103:6-12
and justice for all who are oppressed.
7 He made known his ways to Moses,
his acts to the people of Israel.
8 The LORD is merciful and gracious,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
9 He will not always accuse,
nor will he keep his anger forever.
10 He does not deal with us according to our sins,
nor repay us according to our iniquities.
11 For as the heavens are high above the earth,
so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;
12 as far as the east is from the west,
so far he removes our transgressions from us.
As we’re told that God “does not deal with us according to our sins” (v. 10) and that God “removes our transgression from us” (v. 12), how is God’s righteousness and justice expressed? What kind of judge is our God? As you think about the gracious work of Christ, how does it call you to live in response?
Memory Verse –
He leads me in right paths,
for his name’s sake.
