Bible Lesson 21: David Sins
Memory Verse: Psalm 51:10 God, create a clean heart for me and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
- David’s sins included covetousness, immorality, deception, and murder.
- David broke the first of the Ten Commandments when he put his lustful desire for Bathsheba ahead of his love and devotion to God.
- It took courage and great faith in God for the prophet Nathan to confront King David about his sin.
- Nathan spoke the words You are the man! At the end of his parable, and David was convicted of his sin.
- David confessed, acknowledging he had sinned against the Lord. God granted him forgiveness.
- When God convicted David, he became very aware of his sin and was desperate for God’s mercy. He confessed his wrongs and requested forgiveness with a humble and repentant heart.
- Convict means to convince of error or sin. When the Holy Spirit convicts, He is working to convince a person of his or her sin.
- Consequence refers to a result or an effect.
- Some of the consequences that God said David would suffer included that the sword would never depart his house, there would be adversity in his home, David’s wives would be given to another, and David and Bathsheba’s first child would die.
- As a man after God’s heart, David quickly went to God in favor as well as in failure.
- David requested inner changes from God, including a clean heart, a steadfast spirit, restored joy and praise, and deliverance from guilt.
- Believers should not try to hide their sins, but instead they should confess and turn away from their sins. Then they will receive mercy.
- Every person needs the forgiveness that only Jesus Christ offers, whether his or her sins are great or small.
- After confessing sin, a forgiven person’s response to God should be worship and thanksgiving.
- Justice is what a person deserves; mercy is kindness or compassion a person has not earned and does not deserve.
- Believers might be tempted to take God’s mercy for granted by continuing to sin.
- Once people have obtained mercy, they should respond to God’s mercy through renewed obedience to Him and by forgiving others.
- The mark of a true believer is the power to choose righteous living, a desire for a clean heart, and the readiness to show mercy to others by forgiving them.
- God’s mercy is never ending. He chooses to forgive and forget sin – as far as the east is from the west.
