MAY 30 READING…2 SAMUEL 10-12 & PSALM 51


Today’s theme is clearly that God is a forgiving God. Sin separates us from God. The sin of Adam resulted in all of us being born into sin. That is why we must all come to God, repent of our sin, and trust in Jesus who died on the cross for our sin. Sin is why Jesus died, and we are all guilty of sin…both that we were born into sin, and that we have all committed sin. If sin separates us from God, what can possibly be done that we could return to God? Mankind can do nothing to make themselves right with God, so God in His love and mercy sent His one and only Son, who died for our sin, that our sin would be paid for, and allow us to enter into a right relationship with God. Literally, our sin was imputed to Jesus, and when we respond to Him as Lord and Savior, His righteousness is imputed to us. David sinned against God, but he also sinned against his country, he sinned against Bathsheba, and also against Uriah. He was filled with lust for Bathsheba and committed adultery. He desired her even more after the adulterous act, and this desire led him to commit the murder of Uriah, Bathsheba’s husband. When convicted of his sin by Nathan the prophet, David’s heart was grieved for what he had done, and unlike Saul, David genuinely repented of his sin before God. But David’s sin would come at a great cost…the price would be the life of his first son with Bathsheba. God would forgive David, and receive him back, but all sin has consequences. In Psalm we have David crying out to the Lord with a broken, repentant, and contrite heart…God hears his cry, and looks at David’s heart, and gives him forgiveness. God is a forgiving God…that forgiveness comes when we realize our son and repent to Him, asking His forgiveness with a contrite and broken heart. Our sin will always bring some kind of consequence, and it always touches the lives of the innocent. Pray with me, that we will be kept from temptation, that we would not enter into sin and cause harm. But, if we do sin, we have the promise of forgiveness through Jesus.


Please share your thoughts.
