David wrote Psalm 51 after his sin with Bathsheba, which included adultery and then the murder of her husband, Uriah. Certainly if David, a man after God’s own heart, can commit such atrocious sins, we’re all susceptible.
Thus we need to pray as David did, that the Lord would wash us thoroughly from our iniquities and cleanse us from our sins. Fortunately for Christians, we have a God who forgives sins. All of us fall short in our daily walks, but God’s mercies are new every morning and He is faithful and just to forgive us of our sins.
If you’re reading this today, dwelling on a sin you can’t forgive yourself for, realize God is willing to cleanse you. Just call to Him as David did.
Forgive this sinner,
Pastor Ron Kitchell
