Thoughts for the Day

II Samuel 11, 12, Psalms 32, 51, Mark 14:1-16

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight; so you are right in your verdict and justified when you judge. Psalm 51:4

David has an affair with Bathsheba and kills her husband; Judas betrays Jesus. We deserve whatever God chooses to do. David and Judas may not have been thinking about God at the time, but it is God who was defied. My sins, whether selfishness or murder, are an affront to God and bring unintended consequences on others. David had to live with the truth that it was his sin that caused the death of his baby son, I need to see how often I hurt others by my sins. Thank God there is more to this story. God has every right to condemn us all, but He would pour out His grace on us. There is hope. Jesus sacrificed His life to pay the price for my sin. God’s grace greatly outweighs the consequences of my sin. What is more—when we focus on His grace we find that we will sin less.
