Salvation Is Not Cheap, It Costs God His Son to Forgive Us

The psalmist knows that God's people are often tempted to take God's grace for granted; we are often tempted to see God's grace as cheap and fail to recognize what it cost for God to forgive his people. We often grow comfortable in our sin because we think that since we are God's people, and he has made unconditional promises to us, then we no longer need to repent; we no longer need to confess our sin. We no longer need to fear God.
